WEBS who we are...
WEBS is the brainchild of the late Jim Mundell, longtime Netarts resident and community leader, who dreamed of an organization that would raise awareness, provide learning opportunities, and encourage stewardship for the natural and cultural resources of the Netarts Bay area, between Cape Meares and Cape Lookout on the spectacular Oregon Coast.

WHAT IS WEBS & WHAT IS WEBS UP TO?

Friends of Netarts Bay Watershed, Estuary, Beach & Sea (WEBS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization made up of volunteers interested in creating opportunities for Netarts Bay area residents, property owners, interested citizens and visitors to learn about and experience the unique natural and cultural history of the area between Cape Meares and Cape Lookout on the northern Oregon Coast, through education.

WEBS strives to:
· Build a “learning community” between the capes that encourages people to become lifelong learners about the area and engage in stewardship of its rich natural and cultural history.
· Build partnerships with other organizations and people that will increase community pride in “their place” and contribute to the vitality of the area.
· Increase the use of Netarts Bay as a place for learning about watersheds, estuaries, beaches and seas.

The WEBS Vision Statement:

WEBS (Watershed, Estuary, Beach & Sea) is a community committed to sustainability through education. As a result of education efforts by WEBS, by the year 2012, the Netarts Watershed will be recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as a unique, pristine, and treasured ecosystem, providing opportunities for recreation, enjoyment, appreciation, and learning. Encouraged and led by WEBS, the local community will support and be engaged in the sustained stewardship of Netarts area beaches, estuaries, wetlands, and watersheds, resulting in their protection and preservation to provide a permanent habitat for wildlife, a resource for learning, a spectacular venue for recreation, a model for other communities, and a continuing source of enhancement of the local economy and quality of life.
Current Projects:
