SPECIAL EVENTS

GUIDED NATURE WALK
Did you know Salishan is the first golf course in Oregon to be certified as an Audubon sanctuary? Take a 1-11/2 hr-guided tour starting at the The Westin Salishan and head to the Siletz Bay to see the projects under taken for Audubon Certification. Led by a Certified Audubon member. If the group wishes, it will continue on into the "rain forest" to perhaps see more birds. 1 hr walk covers 3-4 miles; 1 ½ hr walk covers 4.5-5 miles each traveled at a leisurely pace. 25 person maximum group size. $3.00 per person.
