Luckiamute Meadows

About Luckiamute Meadows:

Conservation Values Protected: The Property protects the confluence of the Luckiamute River and Maxfield Creek, a priority area in Kings Valley for the protection and enhancement of riparian and floodplain habitats and to improve water quality and habitat for steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and cut-throat trout. The property has important conservation value for the creek and river systems, riparian and oak forest, grassland and wetland habitats and associated species. Existing riparian and oak forests are comprised of native species including, but not limited to, Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana), black cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa), Oregon ash (Fraxinus latifolia), Pacific ninebark (Physocarpus capitatus), and red osier dogwood (Camus sericea). The grassland and wetland areas support numerous species including Roosevelt elk and various waterfowl, shorebirds, and neo-tropical migrants such as western bluebird, acorn woodpecker, yellow-breasted chat, chipping sparrow, slender­billed nuthatch and Oregon vesper sparrow. The creek and river systems protect critical life history functions for listed or species of conservation concern, that may include Chinook salmon, (Oncorhnychus tshawytscha), cutthroat trout (Oncorhnychus clarki), steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), Oregon chub (Oregonichthys crameri), Pacific lamprey (Lampetra tridentata), northwestern pond turtle (Actinemys marmorata), and red-legged frog (Rana aurora).

The property's conservation values also include its scenic resource of riparian, oak, grassland, wetland and creek/river system habitats that are seen by visitors to the property. The Property is located within the Luckimute River and its Tributaries conservation area Oregon Conservation Strategy, adopted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife in 2006. In addition, the Property is contiguous with an existing conservation easement, also held by the Grantee, creating a conservation zone of nearly 225 acres adjacent to the Luckiamute River that includes the confluences of both Price and Maxfield Creeks with the Luckiamute River.

Acres Protected: 73.6
