Wildlife habitat plan to be discussed


An Oct. 27 meeting in Spokane Valley will discuss a habitat conservation proposal for 32 areas managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The plan covers 900,000 acres of land owned or managed by the state that has endangered plants and animals and sensitive species that could be federally protected in the future. The plan establishes measures to reduce the potential for harming endangered species, but also allows activities such as road maintenance and habitat restoration to continue. Detailed information is available at www.fws.gov/wafwo/.

The meeting runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Spokane Valley Center Place, 2426 N. Discovery Place, Room 109.

Public comment will be accepted through Nov. 1 at wdfwwlareahcp@fws.gov.
