Lincoln City Has Something Rarely Found in the World: Agatized Fossils of Oregon Coast

(Lincoln City, Oregon) – There’s something one Oregon coast area has that practically nowhere else in the world has – and it’s millions of years old. (Above: fossilzed snail / agate photo courtesy Carol Hiler). Or at least it has more of them than much of the state.



Agates and fossils are collectible from beaches, but laws are clear about cutting anything out of the cliffs or bedrocks. That’s a big no-no. You can also no longer sell agates you find on the beaches, which would include the agatized fossils. Lodgings in Lincoln City - Where to eat - Maps and Virtual Tours
