Take Action for Cottonwood Canyon State Park

A public meeting will be held tonight at 6-8 p.m: Tryon Creek State Natural Area, in Portland. This is our last chance to give comments on the development of the Cottonwood Canyon State Park on the John Day River.Major development is expected to happen on key fish and wildlife habitat areas such as Hay Creek Canyon. Please be a voice in limiting the development on Hay Creek.

Development proposed for Haycreek is: Overnight camping will consist of a group camp, equestrian camp (5 sites) and hike-in camps that will be seasonally furloughed to protect resources (12 sites). Bathrooms at the equestrian camp and near the hike-in camp should also be considered. Irragation for shade trees.
