Cape Falcon Marine Reserve

The future of the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve goes before the public at a series of meetings.


The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife seeks input and ideas from North Coast residents on how the department can best share information and engage communities input as part of management of the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve. The reserve is located just off of Oswald West State Park near Manzanita. This is Oregon’s northernmost site and includes a marine reserve plus two marine protected areas.

A workshop takes place in Seaside on Tuesday, Nov. 6 Best Western Plus Ocean View Resort Sandpiper Room, 414 N. Prom from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

A second event takes place in Cannon Beach at the Haystack Rock Awareness Program Speaker Series at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Cannon Beach Library. The program offers a virtual tour of the marine reserves with a focus on Cape Falcon. The state has designated five marine reserve sites off the Oregon coast. These sites have been reserved to protect marine habitats and biodiversity and to serve as long-term monitoring sites to track and understand changes in Oregon’s near-shore ocean.
