The next wedding is Saturday, October 29, so the center of the property will be closed to the public that day.  Please, no fishing on Saturday.  Thank you for understanding.

The property is open for fishing, hiking, and other recreational activities from 7 am until dusk every day, except on event days, when the center is reserved for guests.

The perimeter trails can be used all week and weekend, even on event days–park in the first parking area on the left (West Trailhead) after entering the property.

Please don’t forget to leave a donation to help with maintenance!

This year Pacifica is excited to start working toward real restrooms!

We need community matching funds (your donation is tax-deductible, as Pacifica is a 501(c)(3) non-profit) to start the likely year-long process.

To help with this effort, we are selling I SUPPORT PACIFICA cards for your vehicle (suggested donation $25).  You can get one by putting your donation in one of the small envelopes and filling out the information before placing the envelope into a metal post donation box at Pacifica (at the entrance to the west trailhead, or at the kiosk at the three-road junction, near horse-trailer parking). Or, you can send your name, address, e-mail, and a check to Pacifica, PO Box 1, Williams, OR 97544.

Whether or not you send a donation, please sign one of the petitions at the Pacifica office. We need 500 names.

Thank you for helping to keep Pacifica alive and full of kids, wildflowers, dogs, butterflies, horses, birds, picnics, art, hikers, fishermen, music, people learning & people enjoying!  Donation or not, you’re always welcome (please respect others’ use of the center of the property for special events).

Who We Are

Established in December of 1998, Pacifica is located in the beautiful and amazingly bio-diverse Klamath-Siskiyou Region of Southwestern Oregon. Sited in the Applegate/Williams Valley, Pacifica’s total of 540 historic acres are dedicated to providing education about our natural environment while enhancing the learner’s understanding and appreciation of the natural world and how it relates to daily life.

Our Vision

Nature Center

Our 200 acres of substantially unaltered native habitat (including riparian, Douglas Fir forest, oak savannah and chaparral) serve as a laboratory for study, observation and connection with the natural world and its inhabitants.

Botanic Garden

Focused on the flora of the Klamath-Siskiyou bio-region, the goal for the garden is plantings based on 5,000 different kinds of trees and other plants from around the world. This collection will be the basis of Pacifica’s living museum.


Our goal is to create experiential learning for all ages through classes, camps and seminars, interactive interpretive trails and natural science outreach to elementary school students.

Community and Arts Center

A 9000 sq. foot building is dedicated to community education, celebrations and gatherings. It also houses the Pacifica Arts Guild and Caterpillar program offices, as well as a recording studio (built by musician Steve Miller) leased by the Dragon Media Group.
