Steptoe Butte and Steptoe Battlefield State Parks ... and you!

In 2017 the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will begin a Classification and Management Planning or CAMP process to help shape the future of Steptoe Butte and Steptoe Battlefield State Parks in Whitman County.  For each park the principal aim is to classify lands (land use zoning plans), delineate a long-term park boundary (property acquisition/surplus plans), and prepare a park management plan.   

The planning process will include public workshops and provide web-based information and public comment opportunities.  Through this process State Parks will identify management alternatives to address park related recreation, cultural and natural resource issues. More information can be found on the project website

State Parks will kick-off this project with a public workshop in Colfax, WA. 

Time:  5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Date:  Tuesday March 7, 2017
Location:  Whitman County Library, 102 S Main Street, Colfax
