Birding, or Birdwatching is an activity that you can be involved anywhere. Birdwatchers often focus on finding birds in their own local area, but others will travel around trying to see all a wider variety of species.

Either way is a great chance to get into nature and just relax while seeing the amazing creatures take flight around you. Some people birdwatch because they want to study certain types of birds, others want to use it as a way to educate others about the environment, and some are competitive and engage in competitions to spot birds.

Umpqua River Exploration

Oregon is fabulous for a variety of reasons. Last time we talked about some of the beautiful lighthouses and previously touched on the dunes. This time we thought we’d mention one of the nearby fun activities. If you love freshwater escapades, then while you’re staying at Bay Point Landing, an Umpqua River exploration is definitely an adventure to try!


Exploring Umpqua River History

The Umpqua River is about 111 miles long and is one of the major rivers in Oregon. Several bands of Native Americans have lived in the Umpqua River Valley. The name of the river is derived from a Native American name for a place that was on the river itself, the rapids. Umpqua meant Thundering Water and this name is certainly appropriate to the rapids area.

There are a host of things to do along this river. The Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway runs parallel to the river for much of its length and offers up a number of trails, waterfalls, and picnic sites. You could quite easily spend a day hiking different trails.

If you fancy yourself a fisherman, you can’t go wrong hitting up the North Umpqua for steelhead and salmon. If you just would like to watch them during the seasonal run, you can do that near the Winchester Dam. If you’re a daring sort you can raft down the river and experience its rapids that run from range II to V.
