The 12th annual public roundtable is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Columbia Cove Recreation building, located at 508 W. Cliff Ave. in Brewster on the Okanogan-Douglas county line.
"This is a great opportunity for people interested in the stateís fish and wildlife to get together with WDFW staff and discuss the management of these resources," Anderson said. "I always enjoy visiting the community and discussing with people the issues of interest in the region."
