Riparian Restoration Project
Thin about 22 acres within 6 stands of less than 80 year old Douglas-fir plantations to evaluate the effects of thinning plantations in riparian areas, with a particular focus on wood recruitment to streams, coho salmon and its habitat.
Schooner-Rock Restoration Project
Project would thin young conifer plantations in the Drift (Siletz) watershed to promote development of late-successional forest habitat and improve fish habitat by adding large woody debris to streams.
Siuslaw Coastal Meadow Restoration
Project would enable herbicide treatment methods for restoring native coastal meadow vegetation and enhancing habitat for Oregon silverspot butterfly and other pollinators.
1136 Spur Road Project
1915 feet of road reconstruction and 750 feet of new construction to allow access to adjacent private timber land.
Beaver-friendly Culvert Management
Installation of flow devices and road maintenance work to control beaver damming activity and eliminate beaver-related flooding at culvert crossings that currently require constant maintenance.
Central Coast Ranger District-ODNRA Small Projects Program
Maintain and improve meadows, control invasive plants, restore riparian areas, enhancing wildlife, fish, and plant habitats, reducing fire hazard, maintain or reconstruct trails, and remove hazard trees near roads, trails, developed sites, facilities
Commercial Special Forest Products Program EA
The Forest-wide Special Forest Products (SFP) EA was completed in 1995. The SFP team has held annual meetings refining site-specific regulations. The intent of this EA is to document those site-specific details.
East Alsea Landscape Management Project
Commercially thin 4,200 acres of plantations, create gaps in plantations, plant some gaps in plantations, create nesting cavities and snags in plantations at up to 3 plantation trees per acre, (see "Other Project Information")
East Dunes Campground Project
The Hebo District Ranger is proposing to add 20 sites at the East Dunes Campground at the Sand Lake Recreation Area. The new Campsites will replace sites lost at Sandbeach Campground due to encroachment of the Sand Lake estuary.
Fivemile-Bell Landscape Management Project
Proposed watershed restoration that includes upland treatments (commercially thin plantations), in-stream restoration (adding large wood, and stream channel restoration), and valley bottom management (riparian planting and meadow maintenance).
Heceta Shores Stabilization Project
Construct a shoreline protection structure to stabilize about 325 feet of embankment. The embankment is continuing to fail and poses a risk to private property and homes.
Lobster Restoration Project
Commercially thin about 2,800 acres of plantations 25 to 60 years old; underplant 600 acres of thinned areas; repair 55 miles of roads; decommission about 10 miles of roads; non-commercially thin younger plantations; maintain and create meadows.
Marys Landscape Management Project
Commercially thin about 2000 acres, create nesting cavities and create coarse woody debris in plantations, decommission about 8.5 miles of road, replace culverts that block fish passage, prevent further loss of meadow habitat, and manage invasives.
Millwright Beaver Landscape Management Project
This project includes actions that would thin young, dense conifer stands less than 80 years old; enhance fish and wildlife habitats; repair, store, or decommission roads; and treat invasive plants
Niagara/Boulder Restoration Project
This project is a portion of the original North Nestucca project. Divided into two EA's to facilitate analysis. This project will commercially thin about 598 acres of 32 to 39 year old managed conifer stands and commercially thin about 285 acres.
North Fork Siuslaw Landscape Management Project
This is a landscape-scale restoration project in the North Fork Siuslaw River watershed. Activities include: plantation thinning, fish and wildlife habitat enhancement, invasive plant treatments, and road improvements.
North Nestucca Restoration Project
Commercially thin about 6,390 acres of 25 to 65 year old young managed conifer stands, and treat about 338 acres of alder dominated upper slopes.in the Nestucca watershed.
Pixieland and Fraser Creek Restoration Projects
The purpose of the project is to restore the hydrology and native vegetation of Pixieland, an abandoned amusement park that is now part of the Forest Service ownership in the Salmon River Estuary.
Siuslaw Invasive Plant Treatment Project
Managing invasive non-native plant infestations totaling about 1966 acres (75 sites) with chemical (herbicide), manual (pulling,grubbing) and mechanical (mowing, brushing, cutting) treatment methods.
South Nestucca Restoration Project
Thinning previously burned and planted or clear-cut and planted stands using commercial or noncommercial methods. About 1,015 acres of 28-50 year old plantations and 1,311 acres of 76-100 year old plantations of off-site genetic stock.
West Alsea Landscape Management Project
Commercially thin about 4,300 acres; plant about 500 acres of gaps and up to 2,000 acres in commercially thinned plantations; create about 8,800 nesting cavities in trees in plantations and 500 cavities in mature stands (see other project info)
Rocky Bend & Castle Rock Campground Decommissioning
The Hebo Ranger is proposing to decommission Rocky Bend and Castle Rock Campgrounds. All infrastructure will be removed. Rocky Bend Campground is located on Upper Nestucca River Road, and Castle Rock is located on Oregon Highway 22.
