Siletz Bay Refuge includes some of the most scenic estuarine habitat along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. On either side of Highway 101, starched skeleton trees jut forth from the estuary and are reminiscent of a time when the salt marsh was diked for pasture. Osprey, Red-tailed Hawk, and occasionally Bald Eagle can be seen roosting at the top of these snags. A variety of estuarine dependent birds including Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, and many species of waterfowl can be seen foraging in the tidally influenced waters. The refuge also provides nursery grounds for Coho and Chinook salmon, steelhead, and cutthroat trout. Siletz Bay Refuge was established to protect salt marsh, brackish marsh, tidal sloughs, mudflats, coniferous and deciduous forestland, and the wildlife that depends on these unique habitats. Donâ€™t miss your chance to participate in our interpretive tour of Siletz Bay Refuge!
