HERE'S HOW TO JOIN US

Each Explore Lincoln City Beachcombing Explorience begins with a brief orientation by local expert Laura Joki at the 33rd Street beach access just north of the Sandcastle Beachfront Motel. To get there, from Highway 101 turn west onto 35th Street (at the Christmas Cottage), continue down the street and take a right at SW Anchor Avenue. The beach access will be on the left hand side. Public parking lots are located at 35th and 32nd Street. Parking is also available along SW Anchor and at the beach access.

Following the orientation and the passing of invisible gloves hand sanitizer, Laura will guide participants along the beach and help them identify coastal treasures. Some of the treasures you may encounter include agates, fossils, gemstones, shells, petrified wood, jasper, rocks and minerals. Each Explorience lasts 2 hours. Questions and feedback are encouraged from all participants.

Lincoln City Exploriences are complimentary and pre-registration is not required.
