Background. The 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. The mission of the Fish and wildlife Service is to work with others, to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the America people. We strive to accomplish this by working collaboratively with our partners to address fish and wildlife species under the Endangered Species Act, the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act and other federal authorities.
Jurisdiction. The office's
area of responsibility extends to five counties in southwestern Oregon: Coos, Curry, Douglas,
Jackson, and Josephine.
Office Location. Our office is co-located with the Umpqua National Forest’s Supervisors Office and the National Marine Fisheries Services at 2900 NW Stewart Parkway, Roseburg, Oregon (corner of Stewart Parkway and Edenbower Blvd). View

What We Do. Our focus is to restore and maintain functioning ecosystem processes and habitats that support species recovery and minimize or avoid the need for future listings.
Technical Assistance:We assist federal, state, and local agencies, as well as private entities by providing Endangered Species Act consultations, watershed assessment reviews, restoration activities, and technical support for ecosystem management.
Partnerships. We work in partnership with local federal, state, tribal, county and private entities to recover listed species and their habitats, to ensure viability of species and to minimize or avoid the need for future listings.
Private Landowners: With support through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program based in our Oregon FWO office in Portland Oregon, we seek opportunities to develop partnerships with local private landowners. Technical and financial assistance is available for conservation projects.
Planning Assistance: We implement several habitat conservation programs and provide long range planning advice to county and municipal governments.
North Bank Habitat Management Area (NBHMA): The USFWS coordinates with Roseburg BLM and Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW) on the management of NBHMA for the benefit of the recovered distinct population segment (DPS) of the Columbian white-tailed deer. The acquisition and management of the NBHMA was instrumental in delisting the Douglas county population in 2003.
Vernal Pool Conservation and Rare Plant Recovery in the Agate Desert. We work closely with federal, state, county, city and private entities on conserving the unique vernal pool ecosystems in the Rogue Basin. Information sharing and project coordination related to vernal pools is conducted through the Vernal Pool Information Network (Vernal Pools Information Page).
