Cape Meares Refuge is located on a small headland just south of Tillamook Bay on the northern Oregon coast. It is adjacent to the Pacific Ocean and Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint. Designated as a research natural area in 1987, it protects one of the few remaining stands of coastal old growth forest in Oregon. The Sitka spruce and western hemlock forest provides habitat for a diversity of wildlife, including threatened species such as northern spotted owls, bald eagles, and marbled murrelets.
