2016 Alsea River–Missouri Bend Project

A rebuild of Missouri Bend Boat Slide removed deteriorating creosote and pressure-treated lumber from the river replacing it with straight grain cedar slide boards and concrete cross-ties that do not leach harmful chemicals.  This work was performed for BLM under an ODFW R&E Grant to maintain an existing angler access point on the Alsea River.  Grant application and a significant portion of the work was performed by volunteer labor from the Association of Northwest Steelheaders–Mid-Valley Chapter.
