    Description

    The 9,670-acre Cascade Head Scenic-Research Area (Cascade Head) is a picturesque place of headlands, forested hills, meadows, and estuary on the north-central coast of Oregon. Its dramatic features and changing atmosphere have had a strong appeal for people for centuries. Established in 1974 primarily to ensure protection of its scenic values, its official designation as a Scenic-Research Area came a full decade ahead of the first site in the Congressional system of National Scenic Areas. The Cascade Head Act identifies key qualities and uses of distinct landscape subareas within its boundaries, which form the basis of protection for the Area. This paper highlights Cascade Head's contribution to the evolution of our understanding of scenery as a resource and the new focus it brings for scenery management.
