Reiter Foothills Meeting

Short notice bulletin: The Washington State Department of Natural Resources is hosting an informational meeting this Thursday regarding the future of the Reiter Foothills area (AKA "the Gold Bar road"). They will be discussing upcoming resoration and trail planning as well as the long-term user plan for the area. I think it is important that some climbers go to both make our presence known and to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable recreation in the area (namely, bouldering). The meeting is in Monroe from 6-8 and I'll be driving - email me if you want to carpool, or just show up!

Here's the information from the DNR:

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting an informal meeting for interested recreationists who want to learn more about winter restoration and trail planning in Reiter Foothills Forest. The meeting is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., October 22 at the Park Place Middle School Commons, 1408 West Main, in Monroe.

At the October 22 meeting, you can learn more about what actions DNR will be taking in the coming months to restore the environmental health of the area and determine where trails, both motorized and non-motorized, will be located for long-term, sustainable use. The meeting will also provide you with an opportunity learn how you can volunteer to help restore the area and get involved in creating recreation opportunities.

You can find more information here. I hope to see some of you there!
