The ODFW Visitors' Guide

West Region | East Region

Oregon is a state rich in natural resources. The many lands and waters open to visitors include 27 million acres of forest lands; 34 million acres of grasslands, high desert, mountain ranges, wetlands and urban areas; 300 miles of ocean coastline; 450 miles of Columbia River shoreline; 112,000 miles of rivers and streams; and 6,000 lakes and reservoirs. This variety of habitats enables thousands of diverse native and migrating fish and wildlife species to thrive throughout the state.

The continued health of these species depends on maintaining their access to the quality and quantity of habitats they need for water, food and nesting areas. It is the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's statutory responsibility to provide the management needed to conserve the state's numerous fish and wildlife species, and to provide them optimum economic, commercial, recreational and aesthetic benefits for present and future generations of Oregonians and visitors.

As part of that management responsibility, ODFW operates hatcheries and wildlife areas throughout the state. These sites provide some of the best bird, wildlife and fish viewing opportunities in North America. As you travel throughout Oregon, consider stopping at some of these locations to learn more about Oregon's fish and wildlife, and to enjoy nature's bounty.
