The Oregon coast’s two premier marine science interpretive centers are both located along the south shore of Yaquina Bay. Linking the two is a paved trail winding along the edge of the bay. Interpretive signs describe the dynamics of the estuarine system and identify many of its inhabitants; two observation shelters allow you unobtrusively to watch the passing bird show. Use the path as an alternative to driving between the two centers, or add a short nature walk to a visit to one or both.
