The Advisory Committee is conducting a use survey.  Please follow this link to complete the survey. We estimate the survey will take 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on how much detail you provide.  Responses due by Friday, September 15.

How to Provide Feedback to the WTS Advisory Committee

There are four ways to provide input to the WTS Advisory Committee.

1. At meetings. Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public with designated time for public comment at each meeting.  The time available for public comment at meetings will be limited by full Committee work agendas, so we ask that people keep their comments to 2 minutes or less and understand that there may not be time for everyone to speak.

2. On paper. Paper comment forms will be available at each meeting and at the WDFW regional office.

3. Online. An  online comment form is available.

4. Listening sessions. There will be four listening sessions for the sole purpose of providing comments to the Advisory Committee.

Date Time and Location of first set of listening sessions:

Tuesday, June 27th: Manastash Room, Ellensburg Fairgrounds, 6 - 9 pm

Wednesday, June 28th: Selah Civic Center, 6 - 9 pm

A second set of listening sessions (one in Ellensburg and one in Selah) will also occur this fall (dates and times TBD).

In addition, the Committee recommendations and report will be made available for public review and comment.

Wenas Target Shooting Committee

The Wenas Wildlife Area Target Shooting Advisory Committee will work to develop recommendations for how WDFW can best provide recreational target shooting opportunities on the Wenas Wildlife Area.

The group is comprised of people who represent diverse recreational and neighbor interests including affected landowners, hunters, target shooters, horseback riders, mountain bike riders, hikers, wildlife watchers, bird dog trainers, and motorized users.

Mission Statement

The Advisory Committee will work to develop target shooting recommendations that: (1) are supported by the local communities; (2) reduce risk to Wildlife Area users and neighbors; (3) improve habitat protection; (4) reduce fire risks; (5) are financially attainable and manageable; (6) provide predictability for all users; and (7) adhere to clear and concise standards.
