Bird watchers, rejoice!
Look at how many permits were sold to cut Christmas trees and how many pounds of mushrooms were harvested! 🌲🌲🌲
Shall we just say, yes, forestlands lift a lot of weight when it comes to meeting our shared economic and environmental goals.
That’s great information for everyone to know 👍
Did you know that anyone who sells over $100 in plants - including landscapers and grocery stores - are required to have a nursery license? Our nursery program ...explains the value that the licenses provide as they launch a campaign to educate businesses about the licensing benefits and requirements.
Oh, heeey....look at THAT!
For our many horsey friends I just have to share our amazing new slow hay feeders.
This is probably the best thing we have put in our new barn!
You can buy th...e kit and put it together or just buy the netting and make your own. You can make them smaller if you like. Check out Brian's website diynets.net!!
He also has a Facebook page that I think is DIY Slow Feed Hay Feeders.
Brian is amazing to work with. I am making the post public so you can share.
Public involvement has proper channels to follow. Here’s more information. 👍
Reminder: Feb. 2 is deadline for comment to email@example.com about nine proposed land acquisitions for fish and wildlife habitat and/or recreational access. By ...law, we only purchase land from willing sellers (often at a landowner’s instigation) at fair market appraised value, and the process includes this public review, approval of the WA Fish & Wildlife Commission, and grant funding. See all the details of these nine proposals across the state and the process at https://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/acquisitions/.
We don’t have any salmon runs on our property, but this is a great opportunity for others 👍🌲👍
RCO AWARDS SALMON RECOVERY GRANTS
The Salmon Recovery Funding Board and the Puget Sound Partnership today awarded more than $53 million in grants for 163 salmon... recovery projects in 29 of the state’s 39 counties. See what’s happening in your county at https://www.rco.wa.gov/doc_pages/press/2018/177.shtml.
We spotted mountain beavers years ago on the property. It was quite a surprise. Wonder if fishers are here too? 👍❤️👍
The natural range of the fisher species, a native weasel, in Washington is now well-occupied by humans. Our small forest woodlands occupy a key portion of the r...ange of this potentially recovered species. They can quietly exist alongside people as they are small, and feed largely on forestland rodents.
How can the small forest landowner help? Landowners can sign up and agree to protect fishers if they occur on their lands. In return, the landowner receives protection from any future land use restrictions that could come from fishers being present.
