Welcome to our observatory in Buena Vista, OR. This space was built to enjoy the quiet beauty of the country and discover native wildlife on our 50 acre native habitat preserve. Within just miles you will find so much to do. Whether you like to fish, hike, canoe, river float, kayak, bird, bike, visit wineries, appreciate Rogue beer, crave the small-town feel, want to visit the several colleges in the area, or just want to check-out from reality for a bit, this is the place to be. We are located smackdab in the middle of Corvallis, Albany, Salem, and very near the Willamette River. We are only 66 miles from the Beautiful Oregon coast!
