ABOUT THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA

OCEAN  

Pearched on the edge of the continental shelf, Tillamook County meets the Pacific Ocean with intensity and grandeur.  Cascading cliffs provide a backdrop to crashing waves, sea starts sheltered in expansive tide pools, and see of the worlds largest monoliths rise from the ocean floor. 

ESTUARIES 

Tillamook County is home to 5 major estuaries that feed into our ocean seascape.  Estuaries form a transition zone between river and ocean environments.  The inflow of both sea water and fresh water provides high levels of nutrients, making estuaries among the most productive habitats in

the world. 

RIVERS  

Tillamook County gains much of it's character from 7 major rivers, which include the Nehalem, Trask, and Nestucca.  Fish like steelhead, cutthroat, and salmon return each year to spawn in the rivers' tributary stream.s

FORESTS 

The forests within Tillamook County are dense and diverse.  Large spruce trees reach to the sky as native shrubs expand to the water's edge.  Nutrient rich soil, rolling fog lines, and ample rainfall cater to many creatures that call these forest home.
