Elk, deer and other animals will see big benefits resulting from a long-term project by the Lincoln County Chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association to improve wildlife habitat on Flynn Creek Meadow in the Coast Range.

The 15-acre Flynn Creek Meadow is located about 10 miles southwest of Toledo on land owned by the Plum Creek timber company. The company agreed to work with the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to restore the meadow, which had become overgrown with invasive Himalayan blackberries, which reduced its value to wildlife.
