Public Meeting on Cascades Grizzly Bear Introduction – Oct.7, 2019

From the office of Rep. Dan Newhouse:

SAVE THE DATE: Public Meeting on Grizzly Bear Introduction

Image

The introduction of grizzly bears to the North Cascades will directly affect the people and the communities I represent. I oppose this proposal because I believe introducing an apex predator to the area will threaten the families, wildlife, and livestock of North Central Washington. However, I have long advocated that local voices must be heard loud and clear before any Administration moves forward with this plan.

I am pleased to announce I will be joining officials from the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife at a public meeting on October 7th at the Okanogan County Fairgrounds, 175 Rodeo Trail Road, Okanogan. Doors will open at 5:00 PM. I strongly encourage the people of Central Washington to attend this meeting in order to voice your opinion and put this proposal to rest, once and for all.

For more details on the meeting, click here.

The draft EIS is currently open for comment through October 24, 2019. The public is invited to view the Draft EIS and make comments online here. Written comments will be accepted in person at the meeting or by mail to: Superintendent’s Office, North Cascades National Park Service Complex, 810 State Route 20, Sedro Woolley, WA 98284. Comments will not be accepted by fax, email, or any other way than those specified above.
