Game management meeting set Aug. 23, 2003 in Ellensburg

OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has scheduled a workshop for Aug. 23 at Central Washington University in Ellensburg to kick off discussions on how to improve the public's involvement in the management of game species.

The workshop starts at 10 a.m. in the Yakima Room of the Student Union Building on the Ellensburg campus.

The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission, which provides policy direction for WDFW, adopted a new 2003-09 Game Management Plan last December. One of the key strategies identified in the plan was to improve public involvement in the management of game species.

"Deer, elk and other hunted species in Washington state belong to everyone, and it's important that we hear a variety of perspectives on how to best manage these public resources," said WDFW Game Division Manager Dave Ware.

"We want to know what the public's priorities are and how can our agency best serve those priorities," Ware said. "We want to look at every aspect of public involvement - from the type of meetings we set up, to the way we share information on current and potential wildlife management issues."

Workshop participants will be encouraged to discuss the role of conservation organizations, individual members of the public and WDFW in implementing activities.
