Deschutes River Basin Habitat Conservation Plan
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Deschutes River Habitat Conservation Plan, what you need to know.
The Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) has been a 12-year collaboration among a large group of Deschutes River Basin stakeholders – irrigators, municipalities, recreationists, federal and state agencies, and Tribes.
The HCP will protect and restore habitat in 340 miles of rivers and streams. The area covered by the HCP is massive, encompassing around 10,700 square miles of watershed in Central Oregon. Boundaries are the north to the Columbia River, west to the Cascade Mountains, and east to the Ochoco Mountains. The Deschutes River basin includes six major tributaries upstream of Lake Billy Chinook in Jefferson County.
Bridget Moran, Field Supervisor, US Fish and Wildlife Service, will talk implementation and status of the Habitat Conservation Plan in our basin.
