ODFW, USFWS seeking habitat restoration proposals in the Umpqua River basin

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

ROSEBURG, Ore – ODFW and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are seeking proposals to restore or protect habitat for northwestern pond turtle, northern red-legged frog, foothill yellow-legged frog, American beaver, and other native wildlife in the Umpqua River Basin in Douglas County.

Approximately $150,000 in restoration funds are available from a settlement for injuries to natural resources resulting from a 1993 diesel spill that occurred near Yoncalla.

Eligible projects include on-the-ground restoration that enhances or protects existing wildlife habitat, restores former or degraded habitat, or creates new habitat in suitable areas. Restoration actions can also include administrative measures such as fee title land acquisition, water right purchase, permanent or long-term conservation easement, flow restoration through permanent instream transfer, or a conservation/efficiency project involving reliable senior water rights.

Review the Request for Proposals for additional information regarding eligible projects and application requirements. Project proposals will be accepted through March 1, 2021.
