The WDFW is holding six open house events this fall to give the new director, Kelly Susewind, an opportunity to discuss the agency’s long-term plans to conserve fish and wildlife and promote outdoor recreation throughout the state. Specific topics will include an overview of the department's work in each region, a summary of budget and policy proposals for the 2019 legislative session, and a discussion about how the department should position itself to address new, long-term challenges that affect fish and wildlife. The open houses, all scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m., will take place at the following dates and locations in Eastern Washington: Nov. 5 – Center Place Regional Event Center, 2426 N. Discovery Place, Spokane Valley; Nov. 6 – Grant County Public Works, 124 Enterprise St. SE, Ephrata; Nov. 7 – Selah Civic Center, 216 1st St., Selah. This is your opportunity to meet the new director, as well as regional staff and voice your questions and concerns. Attendance at these public meetings has much improved in recent years. People have more confidence that their voices are being heard. This is a very welcome change from the days when the department just presented their plans and weren’t including public comments.
