Our Rocky Habitat Campaign

Join our My Favorite Rocky Habitat group on Facebook and share your stories, photos, and videos about your favorite rocky sites on the Lincoln and Tillamook coast!


Raise your voice. It can be difficult and intimidating to wade through hundreds of pages of potential plans, regulations, and rules that control how our local habitat is managed by state and federal agencies. We know you want to be part the process, to advance the best outcomes for things we care about: water supplies, birds, wildlife, and the habitat that supports them.

Remembering Bill Henderson

William C. Henderson
7/12/1946 – 7/9/2022
Otis, Oregon

Bill passed away the morning of July 9th after a brief but debilitating battle with lung cancer, just a few days shy of his 76th birthday. To say that Bill loved life would be an understatement. His humor and joyful nature, laughter and camaraderie were what drew people to him.

In his lifetime Bill wore many hats (both literally and figuratively): artist, teacher, electrician, fisherman and photographer. He was often seen navigating Devils Lake in Lincoln City, fishing rod in one hand, camera in the other, and epitomized the motto "life is good."

He was a birder at heart and has many of his bird photos temporarily displayed at Connie Hansen Garden. He loved attending and photographing his children's and grandchildren's sporting events, and spent countless hours handcrafting ceramics and jewelry.

He found a soulmate in his wife Susie, and they cherished 52 wedded years together. He was full of knowledge, wisdom, jokes, and stories, and didn't know a stranger. He is survived by his sister Heather, his wife Susie, daughter Heather and her husband Danny, daughter Cami and her husband Jake, grandson Devon, granddaughter Brooklynn, and many extended relatives and friends.
