Hope you are enjoying the dog days of summer! Many thanks to all those brave folks fighting fires on the front lines - stay safe!
We have a very timely and interesting presentation for our upcoming Council meeting, Monday August 24th in The Owen Building, Coquille OR - speakers Dr. Jimmy Taylor and Vanessa Petro from Oregon State University will present: “Understanding Beaver in the Beaver State”.
We are excited to have these fine folks from Corvallis come down and talk to us about beavers - a species we all know and love - and their presentation will discuss how American beaver are often called ecosystem engineers and keystone species due to the positive effects their dams have on surrounding communities, but they are also are called nuisance species when their dam-building causes conflict with humans.
The meeting starts at 7pm in Coquille, and the public is encouraged to attend! Bring friends and family, we’ll have snacks and let’s have a nice crowd for Jimmy & Vanessa to show them we appreciate their travel to our humble little burg.
The Coquille Watershed Association is the subject of a wonderful article in tomorrow’s Coquille Valley Courant about our work over the last 20 years. Intrepid journalist Shelby Case spent time with us, learning about our efforts to improve fish habitat and working landscapes, and allowing us to ‘toot our own horn” about all that we (and you!) have done for the watershed over the past two decades. Pick up a copy of the Courant at the McKay’s in Coquille and Myrtle Point, or at Frazier’s in Coquille. If you can’t find a Courant nearby (request your local store carry it!),

Thank you Shelby!
