January 2018 to December 2019
Oregon Parks & Recreation Department
For the second consecutive year, England|Ecology was contracted by the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department to prepare a wildlife assessment report, this time for the Harris Beach Management Unit along the southern Oregon coast. Like Smith Rock the prior year, this project required extensive pre-survey research. Because of the size of the survey area, the field component lasted two weeks. Fieldwork included wildlife and habitat documentation (including remote camera trapping), hiking every trail available within the included parks, and camping with Harris Beach and Alfred A. Loeb state parks. Final deliverables included geospatial data and a report documenting what is known and not known about the wildlife and habitats of the park unit, with suggestions for future research and management priorities.
