Watchable Wildlife in Oregon

A pair of binoculars and a sense of curiosity are all you need to start exploring Oregon's wildlife viewing opportunities.

Healthy ecosystems, with lots of native wildlife, help define Oregon; and people want to get out of their houses and offices and see it, hear it, and even smell it. In Oregon, outdoor recreation generates $12.8 billion in consumer spending, 141,000 in direct Oregon jobs, $40 billion in wages and salaries, and $955 million in state and local tax revenue.*
