Comments sought on rocky coast plan

Cape Lookout (State of Oregon)
Thursday, February 13, 2020

The state seeks comments on a draft strategy and mapping tool for Oregon’s rocky coastal areas. Comments will be accepted through March 1 at https://OregonOcean.info.

Just over 40 percent of Oregon’s 362-mile coastline is made up of rocky habitat, which includes dramatic headlands, tide pools, rocky beaches, cliffs, and offshore rocks. The sites are managed by multiple state and federal agencies using a coordinated framework, known as the Territorial Sea Plan.

Part of the plan, the Rocky Habitat Management Strategy, aims to sustain and support the use and health of rocky habitat resources.
