Goldendale, WA -(Ammoland.com)- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will hold a public workshop Sept. 16 to discuss the development of a new management plan for the Klickitat Wildlife Area.

The Klickitat Wildlife Area consists of seven separate units and nearly 16,000 acres in south central Washington. The management plan will address the status of wildlife species and their habitat, restoration efforts and public recreation for all seven units, said Susan Van Leuven, WDFW manager for the Klickitat Wildlife Area.

“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,” Van Leuven said.

The workshop is scheduled from 5:30 to 8 p.m., Sept. 16, at the Goldendale Community Library, 131 W. Burgen St., Goldendale.

At the meeting, WDFW staff members will review the planning process, the wildlife area’s history and restoration efforts. The department will ask for public comments on future management strategies.

Input from the public will be considered as planners develop the new management plan, along with feedback and guidance from the Klickitat Wildlife Area Advisory Committee, a citizen- and stakeholder-based group that reviews wildlife area management activities. For more information, please contact Van Leuven at 509-773-4459.

Information on the Klickitat Wildlife Area’s seven units is available on WDFW’s website.

The department revises management plans for its 33 wildlife areas every six to eight years to reflect current conditions and identify new priorities and initiatives, said Clay Sprague, WDFW lands division manager. WDFW also is updating the management plans for Swanson Lakes and Revere wildlife areas in eastern Washington and will begin the planning process early next year for the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area.
