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.
