WDFW seeks public participation in Oak Creek Wildlife Area plan


OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will hold a public workshop June 6 to discuss the development of a new management plan for the Oak Creek Wildlife Area.

The wildlife area consists of three separate units that cover roughly 67,100 acres in Yakima and Kittitas counties. The management plan will address the status of wildlife species and their habitat, wildlife area restoration efforts and public recreation, said Clay Sprague, WDFW lands division manager.

"We want to encourage people who are interested in the wildlife area to help shape our plan, including how we manage habitat and public use," Sprague said.


The workshop is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m., June 6, at the West Valley Fire and Rescue offices located at 10000 Zier Road, Yakima.


At the meeting, WDFW staff members will review the wildlife area's history, discuss the planning process and ask for public comments.


As the new management plan is developed, the department will consider input from the public as well as feedback and guidance from the Oak Creek Wildlife Area advisory committee, Sprague said. The advisory committee consists of citizens and stakeholders who review and provide input on wildlife area management activities.


Information on the wildlife area's three units is available on WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/wildlife_areas/oak_creek/

There will be additional opportunities for public input, including at upcoming advisory committee meetings and when the draft plan is developed.
