Drift Creek Nature Center

Drift Creek Road off Hwy 101 South
Lincoln City, OR 97367


Mission Statement

Developing awareness, appreciation and stewardship of Creation through education, exploration and interaction with nature.

Vision Statement

Our goal is to guide children and adults in exploration of the unique ecosystem that exists within the old growth forest surrounding Drift Creek and the nearby marine environment.

The Center will foster appreciation for the important ecological contributions of the coastal rain forest, the relationships between the living and nonliving elements and the forest's connection to the marine environment.

The Center will raise awareness of human impacts on the forest and will educate visitors to act as stewards of this and other environments.
