Lower Drift Creek Restoration and Flood Reduction Public Meeting Rescheduled
Lincoln City – A field visit and public meeting for the Lower Drift Creek Restoration and Flood Reduction Project has been rescheduled. The meeting will be held on October 2nd from 10 AM to Noon.
The Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council is assisting and partnering with the MidCoast Watershed Council, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Wolf Water Resources, and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians in the Lower Drift Creek Restoration and Flood Reduction Planning Process.
This proposed project is an effort to connect and work with private landowners and other stakeholders to identify and complete habitat projects within the lower Drift Creek area of the Siletz estuary. The efforts are focused on restoration on three tracts of land within the Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The proposed project will provide spawning and rearing habitat for native salmonids whose populations have been reduced by human activity. The work will minimize impacts of flooding on adjacent public infrastructure and private residences. Interested landowners and community members can learn more about the project, get details on the field trip on October 2nd, and learn how to get involved by visiting www.salmondrift.org
