YAKIMA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) welcome public feedback on proposed updates to Green Dot Roads on state-managed lands in Central Washington.

The Green Dot Road management system marks roads in Chelan, Kittitas, and Yakima counties that are open to public motorized vehicle use. White route markers with round green reflectors are placed along roads open to motorized vehicles. Rules for the Green Dot Road management areas are posted at entrance kiosks. These open roads provide access to camping, hunting, and wildlife viewing while aiding in protecting sensitive habitat.

WDFW and DNR invite members of the public and Green Dot user groups to join them Wednesday, March 27 from 5-7 p.m. for a public meeting to learn more about annual updates to the roads at Moxee City Hall; 255 W. Seattle Ave. Moxee, WA 98936.
