ORREC: Where Euchre Creek Meets the Pacific Ocean
The 23.7 acres of Fort Euchre encompasses a mixture of open water channels, tidal and freshwater wetlands, riparian areas, meadows and forested uplands. The Reserve supports and coordinates research, education and stewardship programs which serve to enhance a scientific and public understanding of estuaries and contribute to improved estuarine management.
Fort Euchre is within walking distance of the near ocean environment and at the starting point of some of the most impressive artifacts of dynamic geologic processes resulting from tectonic collision and 64 million-year-old Roseburg volcanics that formed the rock formations scattered along this wild, untamed coastline. Because of this variety of geologic origins and processes, Oregon’s rocky shores provide a unique opportunity for researchers studying marine and tectonic geology.
Fort Euchre Learning Village Views
Community Projection and Meeting Dome: The main building on site will be a 44ft 1,520 sq.ft Projection dome Standing with a 22ft high Ceiling from Pacific Domes. With this we will be able to hold 217 people standing or 140 people in rowed seating. The use of this projection dome gives us the ability to make learning visual and fun for people of all ages.
Our learning labs will be 3 wagon shaped labs from Pacific Dome
The tech building will hold the technical brain of this camp with top notch equipment to provide the best learning environment possible.
Lavatory Facility: Our lavatory Facility will be equipped with an industrial kitchen, two restrooms with shower and hygiene areas, a utility chase, and an RV clean out station off the rear of the facility. Water will be supplied to our lavatory facility with a 5,000 Gallon cistern from our local Gold beach lumber.
The sleeping quarters on site include nine 16 foot yurts with a capacity of 11 sleepers per yurt. Each yurt will have a base that sleeps 10 with a loft.
Our camp monument will be designed and built by a local artist. Interested local artists may contact us after July 1st 2017. Please download our Monument Request For Proposal for details. The deadline for entry is October 1st, 2017.
