Strait ERN plans quarterly meeting

The next quarterly meeting of the Strait of Juan de Fuca Ecosystem Recovery Network (Strait ERN) is from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Friday, March 17.

The meeting will be at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s Red Cedar Hall within its Community Center on Old Blyn Highway in Blyn.

Agenda items include educational, planning, funding and action implementation topics, among other issues and opportunities that are important to the Strait Action Area. The public is encouraged to attend the free quarterly meetings of the Strait ERN LIO.

The Strait ERN is one of the Puget Sound Partnership’s Local Integrating Organizations (LIO) who are working to implement the Action Agenda, the “leadership and coordinating document, meant to focus the region around a shared agenda” for Puget Sound protection and recovery.

The Strait ERN is a broadly represented LIO that includes all of the tribes and local jurisdictions, and most of the non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, and key business groups with interest in the Strait of Juan de Fuca Action Area (Strait Action Area).

Geographically, the Strait Action Area encompasses much of Clallam and Jefferson counties extending from Cape Flattery near Neah Bay east to Point Wilson in Port Townsend on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Information on the Puget Sound Partnership and the Puget Sound Action Agenda can be found at www.psp.wa.gov and on the Strait ERN LIO at www.straiternlio.org.
