The state Fish and Wildlife Commission plans to select a new director for the Department of Fish and Wildlife when it meets Sept. 11-12 in Olympia.
The commission, after interviewing six candidates Wednesday and Thursday, after narrowed the field to two finalists, a commission news release said.
The finalists’ references and backgrounds will be checked over the next couple of weeks, according to commission chairwoman Miranda Wecker.
Former director Jeff Koenings resigned last December after serving for a decade. Since then, Phil Anderson has served as interim director.
