Printed copies of the DEIS will be available for viewing at the Oregon Dunes NRA Office in Reedsport, the Central Coast Ranger District Office in Waldport, the Siuslaw Headquarters in Corvallis and at several public libraries including but not limited to Eugene, Springfield, Roseburg, Bend, Grants Pass, Medford, Waldport, Reedsport and Coos Bay.
