The operation took six hours. This removal allowed Coquille river water to flow again, after 100 years, into the newly restored Ni-les’tun Unit of the Bandon Marsh complex.

Rogue Ales releases Restoration Redd
I’ve been unable to find this brew for sale anywhere. Perhaps it’s the thought that counts. If you find it please let me know.
(from the original notice) The final phase of construction of the tidal marsh restoration project on the Ni-les’tun Unit of Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge is near completion this week. What started as a concept in the late 1990’s and transitioned to action with initiation of land acquisition in January 2000 will finally be completed this September 2011. Rogue Ales and Spirits of Newport, Oregon joined our team to help us celebrate this accomplishment, which was made possible by the great partnerships we have enjoyed over the past decade.
In mid-June, Rogue released “Restoration Redd Ale” dedicated to the Bandon Marsh Restoration Project. Restoration Redd will be Rogue’s popular amber ale in 22 oz. bottles with painted labels depicting juvenile Coho salmon. A portion of the proceeds will be donated in support of the Oregon Coast NWR Complex’s environmental education programs.
Here’s a bottle from a case bought at the brewery.
