This area includes roughly 10 miles of the New River between Floras Lake and the southern Oregon coast.

Location: On the southern Oregon coast, west and north of Langlois, crossing the Curry-Coos county line.

Description: This area includes roughly 10 miles of the New River between Floras Lake and the Pacific Ocean. Approximately 60% of this area is owned and managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the remainder being private, state, and county land. The river runs parallel to the ocean just behind the foredune.

Ornithological Highlights: Snowy Plover is present year round. During spring, up to 20,000 Aleutian Canada Geese and tens of thousands of shorebirds (peaks up to 100,000) can be observed. This area is one of the few tundra swan wintering sites along the Oregon Coast.
