WDFW welcomes feedback

OLYMPIA — The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife invites the public to provide feedback on a draft 10-year recreation strategy for WDFW-managed lands.

Public input on the draft strategy, which is available in English and Spanish, is welcome through 5 p.m. Feb. 28.

“Outdoor recreation is a significant contributor to the state’s economy and supports the health of our residents,” said WDFW Director Kelly Susewind.

“This new strategy reflects the Department’s commitments to welcoming all Washingtonians and visitors to public lands while protecting wildlife, habitat, cultural, and tribal resources,” Susewind said.

Susewind said the WDFW is looking for input on the draft strategy from people who enjoy all types of recreation on WDFW-managed lands, including hunting, fishing, trapping, shellfish harvesting, camping, mountain biking, hiking, birding and much more.

Prioritized near-term actions in the strategy include making WDFW-managed lands more welcoming to the public, curtailing illegal activity and increasing the department’s capacity for planning and managing recreation.

People can submit feedback through WDFW’s online comment portal or email [email protected]. Written comments can also be sent via mail to Lisa Wood, SEPA/NEPA Coordinator, WDFW Habitat Program, Protection Division, P.O. Box 43200, Olympia, WA 98504.

WDFW will host two online public meetings via Zoom to discuss the draft strategy.
