Conservation of Cape Foulweather Headland, an Icon of the Central Oregon Coast

Recipient: Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development

Federal Funding: $2,011,465

Summary: Through this funding, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians will purchase the ecologically and culturally significant “Cape Foulweather” property, located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This project will conserve the undeveloped coastal property that hosts habitats rich in marine mammals, a rare salt spray meadow complex, and upland forest connections that are important to threatened species. The headland will provide opportunities for community resilience education and play a central role in the stewardship and conservation of these important tribal lands and waters. Partners in the project will build from this investment toward a conservation and education program that strengthens community resilience in an inclusive, informed manner.
