General | November 14, 2018

Want to help shape the future of wildlife management in Washington? Want to meet the new director of Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW)? Now you can do both at the same time.

WDFW scheduled six open house events this fall to give the new director an opportunity to discuss the agency’s long-term plans to conserve fish and wildlife and promote outdoor recreation throughout the state.

“The department’s work is fundamental to people’s quality of life and livelihoods in Washington,” said Kelly Susewind, WDFW director. “Our work to conserve fish and wildlife and provide sustainable opportunities affects everyone. Whether you’re an active outdoorsperson or you’re someone that buys locally-caught seafood at the market, the public expects us to be good stewards of these resources and the public has a say in how they are managed.”

Susewind added, “These meetings will allow me to introduce you to my values and approach and I’m eager to hear what’s important to you.”
