Millicoma Marsh Community Adopter

As community adopter of Millicoma Marsh, CAAS has constructed a “beaver deceiver” at the marsh so beavers won’t block the entrance to the pond and the drainage pipe, on the property that is owned and managed by the Coos Bay School District.

In 2008, volunteers cut Himalayan blackberries, mowed grass, and laid fresh gravel on the southeastern (main) path.

Our most recent activity was completed in the winter of 2009 when we purchased and installed a pet waste bag dispenser at the beginning of the trail where the display case is. Having bags available will encourage visitors to the marsh to pick up after their pets.
