I have been hesitant to put my land on the market for fear of how the natural beauty and life may be mistreated and exploited. I thought I would first open up the opportunity to this community, in the hope of finding someone who will treat the space with respect and love.

I have no doubt there will be interest here, because it truly is ideal for off-grid living, homesteading, building an ecovillage or intentional community, or even to have as a space for retreat.

The land is full of life and has a year-round natural spring. It is located within the Siuslaw National Forest and is just a 10 minute drive away from the beach. It is surrounded by a diversity of Old Groeth forests, wetland, meadows, and coastal lands.

It is very near to Drift Creek Wilderness, which is 5,798 acres of beautiful Old Growth and only one of three wilderness areas established in all of Siuslaw National Forest. It offers endless access to hiking, backpacking, fishing, and camping.

The land is also just minutes from Brian Booth State Park and Beaver Creek State Natural Area, which offer hiking trails and access to a gentle, meandering creek for paddling adventures.

I have grown up here and was raised by this land. I've seen black bear, coyote, cougar, bobcat, heron, osprey, eagle, otter, and beaver... and too much other life to name. As a kid, I would ride my bike down Beaver Creek Road to the ocean. I would explore the depths of the forests with no concept of them ever having an end. I spent my summers seeking out thimbleberries and racing my dog to the creek (although it was always pronounced crik). My friends and I would have cow-pie wars and then jump in the pond to wash up. We would create little boats from what the Forest provided and would race them down the crik. We found the steepest hills to slide down on cardboard.. almost like summer sledding.

My point is that this is an area that provides so much opportunity for reconnecting with the Earth and living with her, as your own sacred string in the web of life. I hope to find someone who can see it as this, and who feels in their heart a desire to protect such a life-giving land by acting as a steward, not as an owner.



***************


I am open to the idea of land trades. As far as a price... I am asking 130k, but I am open to neogiation.

My phone recently broke and I lost my photos with it. I will get more photos soon (hopefully in the next couple weeks) and will post them asap.in the meantime, it is parcel #204 in the photo below.


Thank you,
Sydnee

I have been canoeing and kayaking in your "crik" many times, that is a beautiful area.  I grew up in Newport 1968-1985.  I recall a George Galstaun in high school, perhaps a relative.

I'm curious if you have any permaculture projects going?  I didn't know about permaculture when I lived in Newport but my mom was a hardcore gardener.  The coastal weather was always a challenge.  Looking back I wish I would have built my mom some raised beds, I think her plants would have been a lot happier.  Just curious what you may have found that worked well at the coast.

I hope that you find a buyer that will carry on your land ethic!
