The time is here to make those great Oregon vacations plans. Have you made your plans to visit Oregon this year? There is much to do in Oregon’s seven regions with all its diversity. Embrace Oregon loves showing off Oregon to all its visitors.

Just a couple weeks ago we were on the Oregon Coast. Now you may think that the winter time is not a good time to visit the Oregon Coast. But, it is a great time of the year as well as the summer. Many people love to see the stormy waves coming up on the beach. To stroll the beach for shells and treasure that wash ashore after a stormy night.

 

There are miles of beaches for you to discover on the Oregon Coast.

 

 

 

The wildlife that appears out of the blue for you to discover can be a highlight. Just like the picture of two Bald Eagles on the beach looking at the ocean. I know this picture is a little blurry because I was a little to far away when I took it. What a wonderful discovery.

 

So, matter what your plans are for an Oregon vacation. We are here to help you embrace a marvelous time.

Give us a call (503) 474-0762 and check out our website: http://www.embraceoregon.com . We look forward to hearing from you.

We do have fun in Oregon!

The time is here…. It is vacation time for many of us.

As we start our vacations and spread our wings to have fun checking out wildlife in our area and around the world. We must remember to keep our distance and respect that they are wild animals.

They do not read the signs, warning postings which maybe around the area. Animals live a very different life style than we do. We must remember they are wild animals and look at other small animals and people as lunch or dinner.

 

Everyone admires the beauty of our planets wildlife. Their coloring, fur, size, shapes, and the noise that they make… such as the roar of the lion. Some Wildlife & More 084animals like the water, holes in the ground and some like being in the trees and rocks. Where ever you are keep your eyes open and remember this is their home we are visiting as well as ours. Go about your day and try not to disturb their home.

 

It is wonderful to study them and see the habitat in which they live. There are things you need to know when you visit their homes. Do not touch or move their babies. The mother’s of these babies will come back and take care of them, even if you do not see the mothers. If, you are concerned. Contact a ranger and let the rangers handle the situation.  Always stay your distance. Animals move fast and you may be in their pathway or too close to their babies. Always stay calm and do not run from them. This could cause the animal to chase after you. Wildlife & More 430

 Read up about the area you are going to visit. This way you will be prepared for situations that may arise. Make sure you have food, beepers, maps and let others know where you are going and what your plans are. Be smart in the woods and be safe as you enjoy your vacation time.

It is here…. It is Spring… Many of us are on spring break from school, work and just because. There are changes taking place all around us. Many of us are seeing the spring flowers blooming. Each day is another wonderful day of color.

We are taking time to experience the outdoors and enjoy seeing our surroundings come alive after a long winters nap. For some of us this means gardening, taking a bike ride, a walk or a hike in the mountains. For us here in Oregon we love the changing of the seasons and love to be outdoors. We cherish seeing our gardens grow as well as embracing the mountains, high desert and all seven regions of our state.

Many of us enjoy heading to the Oregon coast to see if we can find a treasure whale-watching1on the beach. Some of us watch the gorgeous waves come a shore. Others like spotting wildlife like pods of whales who are swimming by.

Spring is a great time of the year in Oregon. We here at Embrace Oregon invite you to experience a vacation here in Oregon. Take a look at our tours and some of the fun you could be having.

Wildlife & More 100

Many of us love wildlife and would like to get up close and personal with the wildlife around us. We all know that is not a wise thing to do. We do not want to disturb the wildlife. We want them to have as much freedom to live in their nature habitat as possible.  But, we can visit areas around us where we can learn more about our worlds wildlife and get up and personal.

We had the chance to visit the Wildlife Game Safari Park at Bandon, Oregon. We were able to see a wide variety of wildlife, feed them and pet some of the babies.

It was a nice place for families to learn and experience some time with our wildlife friends. We need to take care of our world and all who live here.

If you would like to join us sometime… Give us a call.

Many people may only think you can see wildlife in the zoo during the fall and winter. They may not know that wildlife in Oregon can been seen any time of the year. What kind of wildlife can be seen in the fall and winter you ask. Birding and elk watching are just a couple of great wildlife viewings that can be found.

Oregon has many fly zones for migrating birds throughout the state. The fall and winter are great times for birding. There are many wildlife refuges around the state. One of Oregon’s best birding areas can be found in Klamath County near Klamath Falls. Many species of birds from mallards to eagles can be seen. So, get out those binoculars and birding books and see how many species you can find. It is great fun.

Roosevelt Elk are beautiful and can be spotted in many areas of Oregon. During the fall and winter many herds of elk gather in wildlife refuge areas. The largest Roosevelt Elk refuge in Oregon is found in the coastal mountain range outside the towns of Mist and Jewell, Oregon.

Hey, if you are looking for something fun to do. The refuge rangers are always looking for volunteers to help them with feeding the elk. You get to ride on a wagon and spread feed out among the elk for them to graze on. What a great experience. I would take my camera if I was you. It is a magnificent sight to see.

So, I am hoping you do not let the fall and winter weather keep you indoors too much. You do not want to miss out on experiencing Oregon’s wildlife while they are in their own habitat.

We invite you to view Embrace Oregon.com for more ideas on things to do in Oregon.  Log on to: www.embraceoregon.com

Have a great day in Oregon!
