Parking permit required at nine ODFW Wildlife Areas on Jan. 1

Updated Dec. 31, 2012

Dec. 31, 2012

SALEM, Ore.—As of Jan. 1, 2013, wildlife viewers, anglers, walkers and others headed to any of nine ODFW Wildlife Areas are required to have a parking permit displayed on their vehicle’s dashboard. Daily permits cost $7 and annual permits are $22. They can be purchased online, at one of the ODFW offices that sells licenses or at a local license sales agent. They cannot be purchased at Wildlife Areas. (Permits can be purchased at Sauvie Island, Denman and Klamath Wildlife Areas during weekday office hours.)

As of Jan. 1, 2013: These ODFW Wildlife Areas will require a parking permit.

These ODFW Wildlife Areas already require a permit.

Parking permits are transferrable between cars, but each vehicle must have a permit while parked at the wildlife area.

A free parking permit is included with an annual Oregon hunting license; combination fishing and hunting license; Sports Pac; and Habitat Conservation Stamp. This is because operation and maintenance of ODFW wildlife areas are primarily funded by hunters through federal excise taxes on sporting arms and ammunition and hunting license fees.

Revenue from the Parking Permit Program will be used to improve habitat and infrastructure and to enhance wildlife viewing opportunities at wildlife areas.
