ODFW Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee to meet in Coos Bay

August 24, 2016

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program (STEP) Advisory Committee will meet in Coos Bay on Thursday, September 8th.

The committee will meet from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The meeting will occur at the Morgan Creek STEP Facility located at 97155 Morgan Ck. Lane in Coos Bay. The agenda is available online and includes reports on STEP activities and projects, program updates and review of mini-grant applications. The meeting is open to the public.

The Committee also will review proposals to renew the five Coos County STEP propagation programs (Morgan Creek, Millicoma, Noble Creek, Cunningham Creek and Eel Lake). Any STEP project that involves raiseing fish for release (including egg incubation) must be approved by ODFW. Part of the approval process includes public input and review by the Advisory Committee.

The proposals are available for public review on the ODFW website online Members of the public will be able to comment on the proposals at the meeting or in writing. Written responses must be received by September 6th.

The Oregon Legislature created Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout. The STEP Advisory Committee makes recommendations to ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding its programs. The committee's 13 members are appointed by the Governor and represent all areas of Oregon.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials. Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at (800) 720-6339 or (503) 947-6002 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
