Washington’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) released a Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement (RDEIS) on eight alternatives for the Long-Term Conservation Strategy of the Marbled Murrelet.

The Marbled Murrelet Coalition will be analyzing this 400-page RDEIS and providing talking points to use and share during the public comment period, which has been extended to December 6, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.

Public comments can be submitted by e-mail but the DNR is encouraging the public to use their new public commenting portal.

You can stay up to date on the Murrelet Survival Project Facebook page.
