ENDANGERED SPECIES –Washington’s gray wolf conservation and management plan will take another step toward adoption Thursday when the nearly completed document – years in the making – is presented to the state Fish and Wildlife Commission.

State wildlife officials will start their presentation to the commission at 10 a.m. in the Natural Resources Building in Olympia.

The presentation will include a summary of comments received from public and scientific peer reviews and the 17-member Wolf Working Group.

Public comment will be allowed after the briefing, which is expected to carry on to late afternoon.

Here's the agenda is for this special meeting.

Public meetings across the state are possible, but have not been announced.

The commission may consider approval of a final plan later this year.

Following are links to documents from the Washington Fish and Wildlife Department's Wolf Management Website:
