Conserving Yaquina Estuary

The Wetlands Conservancy recently acquired 460 acres that will be the cornerstones of a comprehensive protection system for the highest priority salt marsh sites in Yaquina Estuary. The new acquisitions have been the spark for additional acquisitions in the Yaquina, Alsea Bay and Beaver Creek watersheds. It has helped launch a multi-partner vision of 10,000 acres of conserved forest, riparian, wetland, mudflat and estuary lands from Newport to Waldport.
