Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas management plan under review; comment by Jan. 24

December 23, 2021

PENDLETON, Ore.—ODFW is accepting public comments on an updated management plan for the Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas (Irrigon, Willow Creek, Coyote Springs, and Power City WAs).

The Plan is due for an update after it was first adopted more than 10 years ago. ODFW staff are not recommending major changes to the Plan, but members of the public are welcome to offer their suggestions and send any comments to or contact him by phone. Please send comments no later than Jan. 24, 2022.

The four wildlife areas total approximately 1,885 acres along the Columbia River. They provide an important landbase for the conservation and recreation of fish and wildlife within a highly privatized and altered landscape, especially fall and spring migrations of waterfowl and resident upland game bird production.
