Don't forget to show up to the upcoming Fish & Game Commission to provide public comment. The item will be heard on the second day of the meeting, February 17th. It is within agenda item 29 (29, B, III) and will likely be heard in the afternoon. The Commissioners will likely ask for folks who wish to make public comments on agenda items in 29 to raise their hand on Zoom, or they may go into each specific items in 29B and then ask for hands to be raised (it's up to them to decide where to take comments depending on how many are wanting to participate). Make your voice heard!
