Visitors to three north coast beaches designated as snowy plover management areas will be making some changes to aid in the recovery of the western snowy plover, a small shorebird native to the Oregon coast. The bird is protected under state law and under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). The three areas are the Clatsop Spit along the Columbia River South Jetty, Necanicum Spit, adjacent to the town of Gearhart in Clatsop County, and Nehalem Spit in Tillamook County.
Rain exits today, with a mix of clouds and clearing. We're sitting between weather systems due to high pressure building from the south. Wet weather likely returns midday Saturday.
