Last Tuesday, Eric and Mike McGlenn from Backcountry Horsemen drove down to Olympia to present info. to the Board of Natural Resources about the Baker to Bellingham Recreation Planning process. We also discussed how the Draft Marbled Murrelet Long-Term Conservation strategy could impact recreation in Whatcom County and across the state on DNR lands. In our speeches, we echoed the concerns from our committee’s letter which you can read here.
The Baker to Bellingham Recreation Planning Committee is still meeting and we’re in the process of determining appropriate locations for the various recreation groups. We’ll have more information for everyone in the Fall and expect at least 1-2 more public meetings before our plan is finalized. More to come on that.
