A avalanche safety class set for Feb. 8
Hurricane Ridge and the Olympic Mountains have an abundance of backcountry to explore, but getting caught in an avalanche is always a concern. Learn how to be safe while enjoying our beautiful scenery with Northwest Avalanche Center Instructor Sam Luthy at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, in The Landing Mall, 121 E. Railroad Ave., Port Angeles.
Cost is a suggested donation of $10.
Targeting the young and unaware backcountry traveler, Luthy’s talk will introduce the concepts of avalanche danger recognition and how to reduce risk along with where and why avalanches occur, understanding who gets caught in avalanches and why, and provide a basic approach to staying safe in the backcountry.
This talk is presented by the Northwest Avalanche Center, Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club and the Hurricane Ridge Ski Team.
State seeks input on 2020-21 hunting seasons
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking public comments on proposed recommendations for 2020-2021 hunting seasons.
From Feb. 6-26, state wildlife officials will accept written public comments to help finalize hunting rules and regulations proposed for the upcoming year. The proposals and comment forms will be posted on the department’s website at wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations.
Most of the proposals address minor changes in special permit levels and hunting area descriptions proposed since the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission approved the state’s latest three-year hunting package.
More substantial proposals, including several options related to cougar season setting, are also under consideration during this process.
The Commission, which sets policy for WDFW, will also accept public comments on the proposed recommendations at its March 13-14 meeting in Kennewick. Final action by the Commission is scheduled at a public meeting April 10-11 in Olympia.
