Bott’s Marsh Aerial View

Lower Nehalem Community Trust (LNCT) is raising matching funds to acquire and steward Bott’s Marsh and 5 other properties in the Nehalem Bay watershed.

The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board announced the approval of a grant providing 75% of the funds needed to acquire Bott’s Marsh, an important 33+ acre tidal marsh in Nehalem Bay. We are excited to be a part of this opportunity to preserve a valuable part of Nehalem Bay for generations to come.

Wheeler Citizens for Responsible Development is a grass-roots citizen’s coalition dedicated to opposing large-scale development and promoting the kind of development that the vast majority Wheeler citizens want.      Past accomplishments include the 2007 Citizens for Responsible Development Petition, and Voters Annexation ballot measure.  We now see our mission expanded to a more regional venue, and working with other conservation groups on issues such as salmon habitat, estuary preservation, and landslide prevention through storm water management.  Reach us at  and sign up for our newsletter today.
