Public meeting set on Blue Mountains Elk Herd Plan

CLARKSTON The public will have the opportunity to comment on a draft management plan for the Blue Mountains elk herd at an informational "open house" sponsored by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, June 29.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, June 29, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Walla Walla Community College. The college is located on Bridge St. in Clarkston.

The Blue Mountains Elk Herd Plan is a five-year planning document designed to guide the management of one of Washington's 10 major elk herds. Numbering approximately 4,500 animals, the Blue Mountain herd is distributed over an area of approximately 900 square miles.

The management plan addresses a variety of issues including population and habitat management, agricultural damage, and hunting.

Copies of the draft plan will be available at the meeting, and herd managers will be on site to answer questions. All public comments will be recorded and considered by the agency before the adoption of the final plan.
