The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will hold two public, in-person meetings on May 22 and 23, 2023, in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, respectively, to provide information and receive input regarding elk management within the North Coast Roosevelt Elk Management Unit.
The meetings will provide a brief update on the current status of the elk population within the North Coast Roosevelt Elk Management Unit and offer an opportunity to discuss and collaborate with local partners on current and future management directions, policies and regulations. CDFW is seeking input from community partners during these meetings to refine and finalize plans specific to the North Coast Roosevelt Elk Management Unit as outlined in the 2018 Elk Conservation and Management Plan (PDF)(opens in new tab).
These meetings are in-person only with no virtual options to attend.
