CHARLESTON, Ore. ―The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a public meeting of the Coquille Valley Wildlife Area Stakeholders Committee to create a management plan for a new wildlife area.
The 12-person committee, representing landowners, drainage districts and agriculture, hunting, fishing and other conservation groups, will assist ODFW in creating a plan for newly acquired land in the Coquille Valley.
ODFW plans to restore the area to benefit the threatened coho salmon and other fish species. It also plans to provide nesting and feeding areas for other wildlife.
An important element of the restoration plan is to provide public access to view, fish and hunt in the area.
The meeting is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on September 25 at the Charleston Marina RV Park, 63402 Kingfisher Dr.
The meeting is open to the public.
