A rugged coastline meets the rain forest

In the forest around the Covehouse, niches of unique plant life abound – sensitive and pristine – with wild animals nearby. Fish, otters and seals, and crabs are seen from the shore. Stellar’s jays, bald eagles, hummingbirds and kingfishers feed nearby. Massive Douglas fir and red cedar trees, native shrubs, lichen and moss are the living quilt where the land meets the sea.
