(Editorial Comments inserted where noted.)
OLYMPIA, WA – The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission approved several land transactions, including the purchase of nearly 52 acres of property along Dungeness Bay in Clallam County during a meeting here June 1-2.
Purchasing the land, located about five miles north of Sequim, will allow the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to protect and restore key coastal wetlands important for fish, shellfish and wildlife.
The property will become part of the North Olympic Wildlife Area, managed by WDFW to provide habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife species as well as public access for outdoor recreation, such as fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. The $1 million purchase price will be funded with grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. (Comment: I thought both our state AND federal governments were hopelessly mired in debt????!!!! Strange how we have money for the purchase of property yet we can’t even fund our school districts!) Continue reading
