About Westwind
The 529-acre Westwind site at Cascade Head is one of the last largely undeveloped tracts on the Oregon coast. 
 In the early 1960s, volunteers organized an effort to protect Cascade Headland from development; six years later, they had raised sufficient funds to purchase the property, after which they turned it over to the Nature Conservancy. The lands were designated a National Scenic-Research Area as well as a United Nations Biosphere Reserve in 1974. (http://www.westwind.org/)
