Public help needed for WDFW education plan
OLYMPIA—The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking the public's help in developing a plan to educate citizens about a variety of fish and wildlife issues.
Help is sought in two areas.
The first is to get public comment on the draft 51-page education plan. A copy of the plan, as well as an electronic input form for comments and responses, is on the department's Web page at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/outreach/education/eduplan/edinput.htm (The word "education" is spelled without the "i".)
In addition, WDFW is seeking information from the public on the kinds of fish and wildlife-related issues people deal with on a daily basis. This information is being collected on an "Issue Input Form" also available from the address above.
The "Issue Input Form" asks for public comment on the kinds of issues WDFW should be addressing in its education efforts, what groups should be targeted and the kinds of results people want.
A person may submit as many comment forms as he or she wishes.
The comment period for the education plan ends Feb. 5.
