|Monthly Wolf Report – September 2017
This report provides information about wolf conservation and
management activities undertaken by the Washington Department of Fish
and Wildlife from Aug. 15 to Sept. 14, 2017. It complements weekly
reports posted on this site that focus on management actions directed at
wolf packs subject to lethal removal due to predation on livestock.
Statewide wolf activity
In late July, WDFW determined that a dispersing animal from the Dirty
Shirt pack had met up with a dispersing wolf from British Columbia. At
this time, it appears that those wolves may be establishing a territory in
northern Stevens County. WDFW will continue to monitor this activity
throughout the fall and winter.
In addition, other wolves previously collared in Profanity, Smackout, and
Goodman Meadows have dispersed to northern Ferry County, the
Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and the Idaho Panhandle, respectively.
On August 17, WDFW caught and released a young-of-the-year wolf
from the Beaver Creek Pack while attempting to collar an adult in that

Kittitas County Press Release
For Immediate Release
COUNTY SURVEY SEEKS INPUT ON RIVER USE AND ACCESS
Kittitas County, WA - 05/04/2018 - Kittitas County has released a survey to gather input and data on how people
are using the various portions of the Yakima and Cle Elum Rivers. It also seeks information from participants as to
what improvements would be appropriate. The survey is part of an ongoing effort to develop a strategy for
improving access along both river corridors. The County began the planning process several months ago by hiring a
consultant, Beckwith Consulting, and by appointing a Citizen’s Advisory Committee to direct and manage the effort.
The survey can be found on the County’s website at www.co.kittitas.wa.us, or
at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KittitasCountyRiversSurvey.
Anyone who recreates along the river corridors is encouraged to participate in the survey. The survey will gather
data and opinions on a variety of activities including fishing, boating, camping, bicycling, hunting, bird watching,
photography and more. The information received from respondents will be reviewed by the committee and the
public and will be utilized in developing the final plan. Participants may also include contact information to be
eligible for a drawing for a $250 gift certificate as a thank you for being part of the survey.
The river access improvement planning effort is led by the County’s Public Lands Advisory Committee. It is a
county-wide effort focusing on the entire mainstem of the Yakima River and the portion of the Cle Elum River
downstream from Cle Elum Dam. Funding for the plan is being provided by the County’s lodging tax program.
The County hopes to complete the plan by June 30.
