ODFW holds public meetings on proposed Eel Lake/Coquille Valley land exchange

November 1, 2012

ROSEBURG, Ore. – The public is invited to attend one of two meetings in Coos County to learn more about the Eel Lake/Coquille Valley land trade. Meetings are scheduled for 6pm – 8pm in Lakeside on Nov. 8 and Coquille on Nov. 13.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will present information, answer questions and take comments. The Lakeside meeting will be held at Osprey Point RV and Resort, 1050 North Lake Road. The Coquille meeting will be at the Coquille High School’s library, 499 W. Central Ave., Coquille.

ODFW and Bandon Biota, LLC have agreed to exchange 607 acres of property the agency owns at Eel Lake for approximately 510 acres of wetlands in the Coquille Valley. Agreements are in place to protect the Eel Lake watershed and the city of Lakeside’s water supply. ODFW will work to restore wetlands in the Winter Lake and Beaver Slough areas to improve habitat for native fish and wildlife.
