Clarification: Not open yet to the public – but fairly soon.
A beautiful spot on the Oregon Coast that has just been off limits to the public for generations is now under new ownership – the public. Thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the old Jesuit Retreat near Pacific City will soon be open to hikers, birders, photographers, wildlife biologists and just plain folks who want to enjoy another one of Oregon’s visual splendors. USFWS says they’re working on a public access plan which will enrich the public’s enjoyment of the area without the negative side effects that over-use can trigger.
The old Jesuit Retreat that juts out into Nestucca Bay near Pacific City has been purchased by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, boosting the acreage of the Nestucca National Wildlife Refuge to 1,203 acres.
