Meeting to discuss Coquille Valley Wildlife Area draft management plan

February 23, 2016

ROSEBURG, Ore – Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff will share a draft management plan for the new Coquille Valley Wildlife Area on Wednesday, March 2 at the Owens Building, 201 N Adams Street, Coquille from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.

After a short presentation, staff will answer questions and take public comments on the proposed plan. Read the draft plan.

The five-year plan will guide management actions on the 580-acre wildlife area. The draft plan calls for ODFW to:

  • Protect, enhance and restore tidally influenced wetlands, riparian lands, aquatic habitats, and uplands to benefit fish and wildlife.
  • Build, maintain and enhance CVWA facilities.
  • Provide a variety of quality fish and wildlife oriented recreational and educational opportunities.
  • Maintain the CVWA to provide habitat benefits to fish and wildlife consistent with ODFW’s mission and neighboring land use.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission heard the draft plan proposal at its February 12 meeting and will decide whether to adopt the final plan at their April 22 meeting in Bandon.

The majority of lands that compose the CVWA were acquired by ODFW beginning in 2013 with additional lands purchased from willing landowners in 2014 and 2015.

The CVWA is made up of the Winter Lake Tract and the Beaver Slough Tract located between Coquille and Bandon along Highway 42 and North Bank Lane.
