I am a member of the Snoqualmie Wildlife Area Advisory Committee. It is
small diverse group of citizens representing various interests to help
advise WDFW on management of the 6 units within SWA (Stillwater, Cherry
Valley, Crescent Lake, Ebbey Island, Smith/Spencer Island and Corson). I
am officially representing the conservation/birding community and welcome
any input you may have concerning these areas. Or you can contact Brian
Boehm directly if you want to talk with him about concerns (see below)

At this time I am passing along the latest information as we are seeking
new WAAC members.
If you are interested in participating as a member please read on.

have served for many years on this group), including the time commitment,
level of knowledge or anything else feel free to contact me. 425-787-0258

*WDFW seeks advisory committee candidates for the Snoqualmie Wildlife Area *

OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking
additional candidates to serve on a committee that advises the department
on the management of the Snoqualmie Wildlife Area.

WDFW manages the 2,774-acre wildlife area comprised of six units located in
King and Snohomish counties. The department primarily manages the wildlife
area to preserve and enhance wildlife and their habitats, and to provide
opportunities for hunting and wildlife-related recreational opportunities.

The department is looking specifically for candidates who represent
interests of the bird-dog training community, sportsman’s community,
wildlife watchers, or agriculture. Current members of the advisory
committee represent a variety of interests, including conservation, dog
training, hunting, recreation, and salmon recovery, said Brian Boehm,
Snoqualmie Wildlife Area manager for WDFW.

"We would like to expand participation in our advisory group to reflect the
different uses the Snoqualmie area supports," Boehm said.

The two new members would be expected to attend the next advisory committee
meeting, which is planned for this fall. The advisory group typically meets
up to four times per year. Information about the committee can be found
online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/about/advisory/swa-waac/.

The advisory committee will be involved in updating the management plan for
the wildlife area, one of 33 wildlife areas across the state. The planning
sequence for the Snoqualmie Wildlife Area is under development.

Applicants should submit a cover letter that addresses the following items:

- The applicant's name, address, telephone number and email address.
- Name and contract information of alternate.
- Organization the individual is representing, its mission and location.
- The applicant's familiarity with the wildlife area and interest in
participating in the advisory group.
- His or her experience in the advisory group processes and in
collaborating with people who have different values.

· A summary of experience with this or other wildlife areas, and
land management issues.

Applications should be postmarked by 5 p.m. Sept. 13, 2016 and sent to WDFW
Region 4 Headquarters, Attn: Snoqualmie WAAC Recruitment, 16018 Mill Creek
Boulevard, Mill Creek, WA 98012-1541; or by email to
