# 41 Visit the Alsea Interpretive Center

The Historic Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive Center in Waldport is operated by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department with help from the Waldport Chamber of Commerce. The center was created as part of the bridge replacement project in the 1990s. A park naturalist leads daily bridge tours at 2pm during the summer which cover the story of the bridge replacement. Inside the Interpretive Center, there are interactive displays and models of the reconstruction and timeline of the historic bridge. You’ll also find interesting brochures in the Center along with friendly rangers to guide you to activities in the Waldport area. Learn how to go clamming and crabbing when you attend a demonstration led by guides from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Look for a schedule posted in the Interpretive Center during the visitor season. Locations and times vary with the tides.
