Thursday, July 24, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page B-5 STAFF REPORT news@masoncoun cam The National Park Service is preparing an environmental im- pact statement (EIS) for mountain goat manage- ment in Olympic Na- tional Park, announced Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum. A Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmen- tal Impact Statement for a mountain goat man- agement plan is in the Federal Register. "We are pleased to ask the public to help us develop a long-term plan for managing the population of ex- otic mountain goats in Olympic National Park," said Creachbaum. ,"We have drafted some pre- liminary alternative concepts that we'd like the public to reflect and comment on during this initial scoping period. And of course, we are also interested in addi- tional alternative con- cepts people may have." The original need to manage the goat popula- tion was driven by eco- logical concerns related to the effect of goats on the park's natural re- sources, particularly sensitive vegetation com- munities. New concerns were raised in 2010 when a visitor was fatally gored by a mountain goat while hiking on a park trail. The current plan- ning effort will result in a plan that provides for overall manage- ment of mountain goats and considers the non- native goats' effects on natural processes and habitats, as well as visi- tor safety. More information, including the purpose and need for the plan, the plan's objectives and preliminary alterna- tive concepts developed so far, can be found at parkplanning.nps.gov/ olymgoat. Comments can also be submitted electronically at parkplanning.nps. gov/olymgoat, or in writ- ing at one of the three open house workshops listed. Comments can also be mailed to Superinten- dent, Olympic National Park, 600 E. Park Ave., Port Angeles, WA 98362. Comments should be submitted no later than Sept. 19. Public scoping open houses, are planned for mid-August as follows: Aug. 11 Seattle open house 5-7 p.m.; Seattle Pub- lic Library, Wright/ Ketchum Room, Level 4, Room 2; 1000 4th Av- enue, Seattle, WA 98104; 206-386-4636 Aug. 12 Olympia open house 5-7 p.m.; Olympic Na- tional Forest Headquar- ters; Willaby-Klahowya- Coho Rooms; 1835 Black Lake Blvd SW, Olympia, WA 98512; 956-2303 Aug. 13 Port Angeles open house 5-7 p.m.; Port Angeles Public Library (North Olympic Library System), 2210 S. Pea- Luhr's Landing boat launch will temporarily close STAFF REPORT news@masoncoun cam The Luhr's Landing water- access site near Olympia will be closed Aug. 4-8 while a crew from Thurston County Public Works replaces a failed culvert at the in- tersection near the entrance to the boat launch. The launch site, owned and operated by the Washington Department of Fish and Wild- life (WDFW), is just west of the Nisqually National Wildlife Ref- uge on Puget Sound. Brian Mitchell, WDFW natural resource operations supervisor, said access to the launch could also be restricted during the week of Aug. 11 while work continues to install the new culvert. The work zone is at the intersection of D'Milluhr Drive and Scenic Drive at the entrance to the water-ac- cess area. "We're sorry about the incon- venience to boaters, but we're pleased to see this work get done," Mitchell said. "By improving drainage, the project should help to reduce maintenance of the road and parking lot at the access site." Luhr's Landing is one of more than 700 water-access sites owned and operated by WDFW. body Street, Port Ange- les, WA 98362; 360-417- 8500 For more informa- tion or to be added to the Olympic National Park Mountain Goat Manage- ment Plan mailing list, go to parkplanning.nps. gov/olymgoat or call the park at 565-3004.
