[9/22/16] Eastern Washington Cascades Provincial Advisory Committee Meeting

Posted in Local Government & Meetings

The Eastern Washington Cascades Provincial Advisory Committee will meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, at the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest headquarters office at 215 Melody Lane in Wenatchee.

The meeting will include updates relative to year end accomplishments and key project plans for the past fiscal year, I-90 Wildlife Project, Yakima Basin Integrated Plan, Forest Resiliency Burning Pilot Project, and strategic prioritization of watershed restoration projects.

Provincial Advisory committees were established in 1995, after adoption of the Northwest Forest Plan which was developed to protect old growth forest habitat for a variety of wildlife species.  The committee includes representatives of federal and state agencies, Indian tribes, and various citizen interests. 

The entire Wenatchee National Forest and the Okanogan National Forest west of the Chewuch River is covered by provisions of the Northwest Forest Plan.

All Eastern Washington Cascades Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public.
