DNR "Baker Block" seeking comments on recreation of all type

Postby PinkyF » Tue Jan 19, 2016 10:59 pm

This is for land ACCESS and comment period for multiple users (raft, kayak, mtn bike, hike, dirt bike, 4x4, x-countryski, sledding, boating, ORV, horse, camping, backpacking, etc). Hopefully you are passionate about one and get up to the Whatcom / Skagit counties once in a while. Send in an email for all you like to do and any comments you have. I'll post any info I hear on this thread.

I went to the meeting tonight, about 200 people showed up! Thanks, Brenan

From the DNR website: DNR’s Baker to Bellingham Recreation Plan will act as a blueprint for the next 10 to 15 years to clarify what types of recreation will occur and broadly define where those activities will happen in the 86,000-acre area. The area includes Sumas Mountain, borders the three forks of the Nooksack River, connects with Whatcom County park lands and provides views of the north Cascade Range (view map). The final plan will help DNR to pursue construction and maintenance funds for facilities, such as campgrounds, picnic areas and trails, consistent with its vision.

This process is new to DNR-managed lands in Whatcom County, but DNR has used it successfully in other parts of the state.

For more information, subscribe to the Baker to Bellingham e-news or visit the project Web page at http://www.dnr.wa.gov/BakertoBellingham. To provide input or ask questions, send DNR an email or call 360-902-1600.

Recreation planning on DNR-managed lands

DNR-managed lands provide more than 1,100 miles of trails and 160-plus recreation sites on a variety of landscapes throughout Washington state. Many recreation areas are located on state trust lands, which are managed for environmental stewardship with the primary responsibility of providing revenue for public institutions, such as K-12 schools.
