Petitioners tell DNR:
Words are good, but a real climate policy would be better!
On Oct 7th, the Washington Environmental Council, Washington Conservation Voters and Washington Forest Law Center sent this further request to the July 7, 2020 response from the WA State Department of Natural Resources. The original twenty-six page petition sent a year ago, requested DNR and BNR develop a climate policy for State lands, explicitly including the management of State lands for climate mitigation. OCA wrote a letter in support. We are watching how this transpires.
There is currently no risk-free way to spend time indoors with the loved ones who live outside your home.
Consider having a “COVID conversation” ahead of time to make sure everyone is on the same page about safety.
