WDFW invites public comments on 18 land conservation projects

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is inviting public comments on 18 strategic land conservation projects that would protect fish, wildlife, and public access to the great outdoors. Next steps include seeking funding sources for these projects including state Recreation and Conservation Office grants and federal grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Conservation projects proposed by the department range from habitat protection and restoration opportunities on the Union River Estuary in Mason County to establishing public boating access on Chapman Lake in Spokane County. Descriptions of all proposed projects are available on the department’s land acquisition webpage at https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/wdfw-lands/land-acquisitions.

The department will accept written comments through Jan. 3, 2020. People who would like to submit comments can send them by email to lands@dfw.wa.gov or mail them to: Real Estate Services, PO Box 43158, Olympia, WA 98504.

"This is an opportunity to comment on proposals in the early stages of our strategic thinking," said Cynthia Wilkerson, WDFW lands division manager. “Our goal is to protect land and water for people and wildlife throughout the state while preserving natural and cultural heritage.”

The department owns or manages about one million acres statewide, with 33 wildlife areas and nearly 500 water access areas around the state. These public lands help sustain wildlife habitat and public recreation opportunities for current and future generations.

RE: WDFW invites public comments on 18 land conservation projects / email sent on Thursday December 12, 2019 @ 08:53 PST

Your email states that the comment period on this project ends on Friday, January 3, 2020.
Given that between now and January 3 there is:
Christmas
Hanukkah
Festivus
Qwaanza
New Years

AND my mother’s 89th birthday

You simply haven’t allowed enough time for the public to comment on this massive project.
You need to extend the comment period.
Three weeks is NOT REASONABLE.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration
