March 18th Meeting Reminder - 7 pm at The Brick

Fellow TU members and volunteers,

The next Chapter meeting is at 7 PM on Wednesday, March 18th at The Brick in Roslyn, WA. We meet in the downstairs family section, so all ages are welcome. Spend a day fishing in the area, then join us for food & drinks and a full agenda for the evening.

First, an update on our charter and presentation of the Board, followed by a presentation from Mid-Columbia Fisheries on their Stream Stewards program and other conservation work in the Yakima Basin. Here's a link for more information:

We'll wrap up with a review of strategy for 2015 and planning the rest of the year's meetings, conservation work, and volunteer opportunities.

The Nature Conservancy is also seeking public comment on their recent purchase of land in the Headwaters, near Snoqualmie Pass.

If you're interested in contributing to the discussion on planning the future of forestlands in the area, The Nature Conservancy is hosting a series of meetings in the area about a planned aquisition of 48,000 acres of land in the Central Cascades. The headwaters of the Yakima River begin in Upper Kittitas County, near Snoqualmie Pass and this location. Here's a link for more information.

See you on March 18th,

The 1st of these is on Thursday 3/5, @ 530p in Cle Elum at the Senior Center.

The purchase of the Plum Creek checkerboard lands makes TNC a big player/landowner in headwaters of the Yakima.  Especially in the Easton-Cabin Creek area.

Of course, 3 pillars they list on the project are wildlife (fish for our purposes), recreation (fishing), and clean water... this is pretty well in line with us.

I plan to be there Thursday, anyone else from the Chapter?

I would also think it might be good if any of our Ellensburg members don't have plans for St Paddy's day... the next TNC open house is on 3/17 at the Armory 530p
