The mission of the Recreation and Projects Department is to provide, create, organize and enhance recreational opportunities on the reservation and surrounding communities. This program will also provide opportunities to utilize the Tribes’ natural resources in a sound and prudent manner by coordinating firewood supplies, preparing salvage sales and other special projects that support the Natural Resources Division.
The Reservation provides a variety of recreational opportunities. Hiking trails are being developed along Yoncalla, Burton, and Coast Creeks. An educational day-use park and campground along Agency Creek have been established and are open to the public. Fishing is being enhanced by improving the habitat for native trout and steelhead. Big game such as deer and elk may be hunted by the public during the regular hunting season.
