Staffers from Olympic National Forest, along with the Wild Fish Conservancy and the Hood Canal Coordinating Council, will host a public meeting Nov. 30 to discuss a proposal to put engineered logjams in the Dosewallips River.

The meeting will be from 6-7 p.m. at the Brinnon Community Center, located at 306144 U.S. 101 in Brinnon.

Staffers will discuss a proposed series of restoration projects designed to stabilize the river channel, reduce flooding and improve fish habitat in the river. Project proponents will explain the goals and objectives of the proposed project and gather comments from the public.

A pre-meeting site tour of existing engineered logjams will be held 4-4:30 p.m. that same day in Dosewallips State Park. People should meet at the day-use area of the park, located on the access road on the east side of U.S. 101, south of the river.

For additional information about the proposed project, the site tour, or the public meeting, contact Marc McHenry, Olympic National Forest fish biologist, at 360-765-2231.
