Wolf Post-Recovery Planning in Washington Survey

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is inviting the public to comment on the scope of a post-recovery plan for wolves in Washington (Plan). The State Environmental Policy Act, or SEPA, process will be used to develop the Plan. This involves preparing a draft Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS, that will be available for public review. That document will evaluate actions, alternatives, and impacts related to long-term wolf conservation and management.
The first step of the SEPA process involves scoping, which helps determine proposed actions, alternatives, and impacts to be discussed in the impact statement. Scoping improves decisions and encourages collaboration, cooperation, and early resolution of potential conflicts. It is intended to narrow the impact statement to the relevant issues.
Scoping is a public process and everyone is encouraged to provide input.
