Hi folks,

I presume that you Refuge Volunteers or Refuge savvy-types are aware of this, but I just saw it on the Federal Register.

The FWS has announced the availability of the draft comprehensive conservation plan and environmental assessment (draft CCP/EA) for Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) and the Black River Unit (Unit) of Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge for public review and comment. The draft CCP/EA describes their proposals for managing the Refuges for a period of 15 years following approval of the final CCP. They ask for written comments by November 25, 2016.

I know that a lot of folks bird at the "Grays Harbor" NWR, and fewer folks go to the Black River. But, there's a lot at stake in commenting on these Conservation Plans - they become the "Bibles" that FWS uses to manage the places we love for a good share of our lives.

The Grays Harbor Plan is online at

The Black River Unit Plan is on line at

Lets let the nice folks at USFWS know what you want . . . . or perhaps the Bundys and their anti-American ilk will have more of a voice!!
