63rd Western International Forest Disease Work Conference (WIFDWC)


Best Western Agate Beach Inn

September 21-25, 2015

Newport is located at the heart of the central Oregon coast, the pristine area along Route 101 stretching from Lincoln City south to Florence. The area boasts more State Parks and public waysides than any other place in the state. Root and foliage diseases are rampant in the nearby forests. It also is home of the Oregon Coast Aquarium, a world-class marine educational attraction on beautiful Yaquina Bay, near the Rogue Ales Brewery. Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area is located just over a mile north of the conference center. Oregon coast weather is highly variable, but September generally is dry with mild temperatures. Come to Newport!
