Shasta Agness Project
The Gold Beach Ranger District, Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is developing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Shasta Agness Restoration Project with an expected release date sometime in August 2017. There will be a 45 day comment period following the release.
The DRAFT Shasta Agness Project is proposing to close or decommission 12 to 20 miles of road on the Gold Beach and Wild Rivers Ranger Districts with this decision. The Forest Service website link has additional information and maps.
This project does have the potential to open up 2,700 acres of Oregon white oak and serpentine pine habitat as well as return fire to these areas. These treatments should improve habitat conditions for deer, elk, turkeys and other species that need open habitat for foraging.

The latest DRAFT information provided at the Forest Service/Wild Rivers Coastal Forest Collaborative field trip on June 8, 2017 is located under the “Supporting” tab and the 2017-06-08 WRCFC Focused Informational Field Trip.

CCPLA Members are a growing group of citizens with the shared purpose of retaining public land access for current and future generations. The CCPLA is a member based organization and is dependent on our membership, both in a practical sense, as your annual fee funds our basic operating expenses, such as insurance, office supplies, outreach materials and various fees, but also in a physical sense to work on our field projects. We could not exist without your support.
