Planning a Trip to the Oregon Coast- Fossil Hunting Suggestions?


Recommended Posts

Salutations FF! Sometime next week I'm planning to come down to the Central Oregon Coast (Sort of around the Newport area). I'm planning on hitting Beverly Beach, Agate Beach, and South Beach in hopes of finding some shells and with the blessing of the fossil gods, maybe an aturia. Was wondering what kind of experience people have had at these beaches, and if there are any other places worth hitting in the area.

I went to Beverly Beach north of Newport a few years ago.  There are many concretions you can hammer open and find all kinds of neat stuff - crabs if you are lucky among other things. There are lots of Denatlium fossils and the occasional gastropod.  Just make sure you don't dig into the cliffs. Only surface collecting. The cliffs are very unstable and are eroding badly.

It is possible to find quite a diversity of molluscs in loose blocks at Beverly.
