Call to action: Your chance to advocate for WA Wild Sheep
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:34:48 PM »
One of the keystone areas of sheep habitat is under threat of development. A new management plan is currently being created for the Chelan Wildlife Management Area. This area contains one of the biggest herds of California bighorn sheep in Washington. Currently an advisory committee is taking public input in creating a new management plan. One user group is making a push to develop the Chelan Butte and build a mountain biking trail through the heart of bighorn sheep habitat. To maintain critical bighorn habitat the Chelan Butte cannot sustain any development. It is crucial that all conservation-minded groups as well as individuals submit letters, comments, and opinions to the advisory committee and area plan managers. It is absolutely crucial that input is submitted in favor of preserving the Chelan Wildlife area and opposing all development; most immediately any mountain biking trails on Chelan Butte. All input in encouraged to be submitted as soon as possible.

Please submit all letters and comments to the following: (send to all emails)

Ron Fox, Manager of Chelan Wildlife Area: Ronald.fox@dfw.wa.gov

Lauri Vigue, Project Manager: Lauri.vigue@dfw.wa.gov

Dave Volson, District Wildlife Biologist, Wenatchee: David.volsen@dfw.wa.gov

Richard Finger, Operation Lands Manager: Richard.Finger@dfw.wa.gov

And any comments to: chelanwla@dfw.wa.gov

This state is limited in good sheep habitat.


NOT limited in development areas or areas to find a place to mountain bike.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Please help spread the word! It is crucial that all conservation-minded sportsman voice opinions and stress the importance of preserving the Chelan Wildlife Area for not only bighorn sheep, but critical mule deer winter range, upland bird habitat ect....

Also, it is important to submit to all five of the emails/contacts.

The butte is busy already with paragliding, hikers, train, trucks, tractors, helicopters, occasionally a dirt bike, sheep, deer, bird and coyote hunters. My wife almost got a ram on the highway today but she missed. Where would the bike trails go? Through wheat fields.
