Monday March 26th 7-9pm, Sultan, WA City Hall office.

There are a ton of varying opinions on this topic. I think I'd like to see them moved to the North Cascades, but am open to hearing others' opinions.



Where was the public notification of these meetings published at? Did WDFW send out a public notification via email? Likewise do you know where the NPS published notifications for these meetings?

This is the email I got from WDFW on 3/6/2018:

Meetings planned on mountain goat
 relocation to native habitat in North Cascades

OLYMPIA – Four meetings are scheduled in late March to enable northwest Washington residents to learn more about a proposal to move mountain goats from Olympic National Park to the North Cascades during the summers of 2018 and 2019.

The public is invited to hear a presentation and speak with representatives of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) during meetings in Sedro Woolley, Darrington, North Bend, and Sultan.

The National Park Service, in collaboration with the two agencies, has prepared a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for a mountain goat management plan to remove them from Olympic National Park to reduce damage to the park's natural resources – especially native vegetation – and to protect public safety.

The preferred alternative in the draft EIS calls for relocating some of the mountain goats from the park and nearby Forest Service lands to their native habitat in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forests.

The Park Service is expected to issue a final EIS this spring.

Meetings are scheduled for:
•Tuesday, March 20, 7 to 9 p.m.
 Mt. Baker Ranger District Office, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest
 810 State Route 20
 Sedro Woolley
•Wednesday, March 21, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
 Darrington Library Meeting Room
 1005 Cascade St.
 Darrington
 (Note: The presentation will be made during the last segment of the meeting of Darrington Strong)
•Thursday, March 22, 7 to 9 p.m.
 Snoqualmie Ranger District Office, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest
 902 SE North Bend Way
 North Bend
•Monday, March 26, 7 to 9 p.m.
 Sultan City Hall Meeting Room
 319 Main St., #200
 Sultan

Looking forward to helpling out on this project :tup:

Curious to know how you got there?
I emailed Rich Harris almost immediately and haven’t gotten a response.
