Camp Creek Hills

About Camp Creek Hills:

Project Proponent: Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians

Year Acquired: 2020

Conservation Values Protected: Camp Creek Hills protects contiguous high quality habitat that provides connectivity to other protected natural areas, as well as hosts exceptional flora and fauna near an urban center. The conservation values that currently exist include: grasslands and oak woodlands. These values provide habitat associated with several Oregon conservation strategy species including but not limited to: western bluebird, western meadowlark, common nighthawk, Lewis's woodpecker, chipping sparrow, western gray squirrel, and white-breasted nuthatch. The property also provides habitat connectivity across a large contiguous area, due to its location directly adjacent to a 120 acre Bureau of Land Management property to the northeast, as well as a 340 acre complex of riparian conservation properties to the south. This complex includes the Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program properties Big Island, and the Berggren Watershed Conservation Area. Additionally, Camp Creek contributes significant acreage to supplement existing regional conservation efforts guided by the Ridgeline Area Open Space Vision and Action Plan from federal, state, county, and municipal organizations participating in the Rivers to Ridges Partnership. Camp Creek Hills contains culturally significant plant species such as Oregon white oak, common camas, service berry, ocean spray, tall Oregon grape, cascara, snowberry, narrow leaf onion, Indian plum, Oregon ash, and soft sedge, tarweed, and California hazelnut. These species are historical food staples for the bands of Kalapuya that once inhabited this area.

Acres: 504

Access: Open to the public, permit required
