Meeting scheduled Sept. 25 in Pateros to discuss fish and wildlife issues

OLYMPIA – North central Washington residents will have an opportunity to discuss fish and wildlife issues with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Director Jeff Koenings and regional staff during a public meeting Sept. 25 in Pateros.

The meeting is scheduled from 6-8 p.m. at the Pateros School Library, 344 W. Beach St.

Topics will include the state’s draft wolf conservation and management plan that will undergo public review early next year and an update on the status of Washington’s first wolf pack in over 70 years, recently found in western Okanogan County. WDFW staff also will answer questions and take comments about fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing, habitat protection, enforcement and other issues related to fish and wildlife resources.

“I encourage anyone with an interest in our state’s fish and wildlife to take the time to attend this discussion,” said Dennis Beich, WDFW north central regional director. “This will be an excellent forum to informally discuss issues in depth, and to become better acquainted with department personnel.”

Beich said the upcoming session is the seventh annual public roundtable that Koenings and WDFW staff have held in Pateros.
