Yesterday was our first day of working at the Welcome Center at Beaver Creek State Natural Area which is open 12 to 4. We had a busy afternoon with over 30 visitors. One of the things we learned is that one of the busier aspects of the park is kayaking on Beaver Creek. From the Welcome Center we watched lots of kayakers navigating through the marsh. Oregon State Parks also conducts daily kayak tours Thursday through Monday on Beaver Creek. The cost is twenty dollars and they supply the kayak (shown above), life vest, paddles, instructors and guides. All trips start at South Beach State Park. Call 541- 867-6590 for reservations.
