BEAVER SLOUGH DRAINAGE DISTRICT
Beaver Slough Drainage District (BSDD) was formed to manage drainage in the China Camp Creek and Winter Lakes basins for the purposes of agriculture and other uses. The drainage district plays a lead role in overseeing, removing, and enhancing the tide gates and other infrastructure on the project site.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is the landowner of two project sites - 286 acres within Winter Lake and 225 acres in the Beaver Slough watershed. ODFW will provide public access and manage these lands under a long-term management plan.
The Nature Conservancy, a nonprofit conservation organization, has provided financial support to the project and is the lead entity on restoration actions.
China Camp Creek Gun Club is an adjacent landowner and is working collaboratively by providing a conservation easement over 120 acres.
