Upcoming Local Working Group (LWG) Meetings

Dates coming soon for the Local Working Group (LWG) Meetings are indicated below.

ATTENTION: Due to COVID-19, 2021 meetings will be held virtually. Please see the list below or contact the district conservationist for call-in information.

The Washington State Conservation Commission has organized a Local Work Group Survey in order to gather information in advance of the meeting to help condense the meeting time.

If you miss a LWG meeting, or will be unable to attend in person, you may still provide input by contacting the District Conservationist or contact listed below.
