People who live and work around the Lower Siletz River are invited to take part in an outreach effort by the Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District this Tuesday, Dec. 17, in Siletz.
Titled “Bay to Headwaters,” the Siletz Stakeholder Engagement Project aims to gather local knowledge to help inform future restoration projects.
To help lessen human impacts to the Siletz River Watershed, the district is carrying out a multi-year outreach effort to build community connections with private residents, agricultural producers, timberland managers, tribal entities and other diverse stakeholders along the Lower Siletz River, Middle Siletz River and Rock Creek watersheds.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the district’s Conservation Programs Coordinator Emily-Bell Dinan will introduce the project and allow for discussion of how Siletz Watershed Council members can get involved in the years to come.
The presentation will begin at 6:30 pm at the Siletz Public Library on 225 SE Gaither Street. Refreshments will be provided.
