Conservation Areas

The Oregon Department of Forestry is advancing a plan, crafted with substantial public input, to protect North Coast state forests (including the Tillamook and Clatsop) for fish, wildlife and people. Important wildlife and recreation corridors will be protected along the Nehalem River, Salmonberry River, Kilchis River, Wilson River, Trask River and the Kings and Elk Mountain areas. All major salmon streams will be protected by 120-foot forested buffers. And the plan would be federally approved and remain in effect for 70 years. It’s an enduring conservation legacy to leave for generations of Oregonians to come.
