It's a Beach Party in Eugene

Published: June 30, 2017


Eugene, OR — Join Travel Lane County as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Oregon Beach Bill. Oregon Governor Tom McCall signed this historic legislation on July 6, 1967 making certain that Oregon's 363 miles of public beaches would always be public. Our goal is to create awareness around this significant historical event and to get folks excited to visit the Oregon Coast!

Our beach will feature several Florence members and others illustrating the great offerings we have in Florence and along the Oregon coast. Our downtown Eugene dunes will be anchored by an off-highway vehicle from Save the Riders Dunes and sand boards from Sand Master Park. We’ll have Trebolo Glass Studio, Driftwood Shores, Oregon Coast Magazine, the Florence Chamber of Commerce, the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative and the Siuslaw National Forest tabling.  Travel Lane County visitor services staff will be there with our mobile outreach vehicle MIKE the Bike. Staff will have a coastal trivia game and will be handing out FREE Solar Eclipse Glasses to get everyone ready for August 21st
