Roseburg Field Office was established in 1995 to help implement the Northwest Forest Plan and
carry out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's mission in
southwest Oregon. Since that time we have been working with the
local community to advance conservation and have significantly contributed
to the recovery and restoration of species and habitats in our area.
Jurisdiction. The office's
area of responsibility extends to five Oregon counties: Coos, Curry, Douglas,
Jackson, and Josephine.
Office Location. Our
office is located at the northwest
corner of Stewart Parkway and Edenbower roads in Roseburg, Oregon. (View
are co-located with the Umpqua National Forest and the National
Marine Fisheries Services.
What We Do. We collaborate
with federal, state, tribal, county, and private entities to address natural
resource issues in project planning and development. We provide
technical and financial assistance for watershed assessment, habitat restoration
and management, wildland fire management, and Endangered Species Act consultation.
North Bank Habitat Management Area (NBHMA): The USFWS has coordinated with BLM, Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, and Oregon Dept. of Agriculture at the NBHMA to accomplish recovery of the Columbian white-tailed deer and the rough popcornflower. The acquisition and management of the NBHMA was instrumental in delisting the deer in 2003. Rough popcornflower populations introduced to the NBHMA have also contributed significantly to the plant's recovery.
Conservation in the Agate Desert. We
are in the process of developing a regional mitigation and
conservation banking strategy for the Agate
Desert vernal pool
areas in Jackson county.
Vernal Pool Information Network (VPIN). The USFWS in conjunction with Rogue Valley Council of Governments are co-sponsoring a series of information sessions for folks interested in learning more about conservation of vernal pool ecosystems in the Rogue Valley/Agate Desert area. Click here for VPIN content that will be posted soon after each session.
ESA Consultations. We provide consultation
for our action agency counterparts: Army Corps of Engineers,
USDA Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the
Tribes in southwest Oregon for actions that may affect listed
