The exhibit will focus on the plants, animals, and fish that live in estuaries and tide pools where fresh and salt water combine.  The goals of the exhibition are to celebrate the aesthetic and ecological significance of Oregon’s estuaries, tide pools and intertidal habitats, and build a diverse community of Oregonians and coastal visitors to promote protection and conservation for generations to come.

    Ode to the Tides will contain original art in a variety of media, created by Northwest artists, and will be displayed at seven venues on the Northern Oregon coast and Willamette Valley from May-December 2019. Ode to the Tides goals are to recognize the aesthetic and ecological significance Oregon’s estuaries, tide pools and intertidal habitats, to spark community and creative interdisciplinary engagement, promote conservation and enhance visitor experience and support of coastal resources and communities. In addition to the exhibition and sales of art to support coastal conservation, each venue will offer scientific programs, student led events, outdoor  and food experiences for visitors throughout the time the show.

    The New Yakona Nature Preserve, Ode to Tide Event

    7:00 pm-8:00 pm
    09-13-2019
    Pacific Maritime Heritage Center
    333 SE Bay Blvd, Newport OR 97365

    Hosted at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center, this will be a presentation by Bill Barton about this new nature preserve.

    The Yakona Nature Preserve was created as a forest sanctuary on Yaquina Bay with hiking trails and viewpoints freely accessible to people of all abilities and offers opportunities to learn about resident wildlife and cultural history, and to serve as a living laboratory of coastal ecosystems.

    In July of 2012, the Bartons began buying land parcels in the area, working to piece together one of the last natural areas of its kind on the Oregon coast. To date, they’ve acquired 168-acres on a large peninsula on Yaquina Bay that’s home to elk, black bears, cougars, eagles and more. Working closely with a skilled forester, the Bartons seek to return the land as closely as possible to what it might have looked like hundreds of years ago. The Bartons have planted nearly 10,000 native trees and shrubs, including 7,000 Sitka spruce.
