Rocky Shores

Rocky shores include the offshore islands that are home to over a dozen species of nesting seabirds. It also includes the high rocky cliffs, rocky beaches, and rocky outcroppings that dominate the North Coast. There are a few rocky shores on the South Coast such as the rock jetties at Ocean Shores, Westport, Fort Canby, and the rock breakwaters at Tokeland and along the Columbia River.
