The Oregon Coast & Long Beach Peninsula are home to some great spots for foraging wild clams, mushrooms, berries, and nuts. Check out our favorites below!
Please keep in mind to forage safely, and to respect the signs and wishes of the property owner(s) when it comes to taking anything.
Razor clams are the most sought-after mollusk on the coast, and they’re so easy to find! All you need is a clam shovel, a container, and a clamming license. They can be found on beaches through the fall season.
There’s so many berries available along our walking paths, it’ll be hard to choose which kind to take home! Whether you’re looking for Himalayan blackberries, red or green huckleberries, thimbleberries, salal berries, or salmonberries, you’ll have the pick of the crop! These sweet (and not so sweet) berries can be found in the same locations as mushrooms – under fir & hemlock trees and along walking paths.
