January 11, 2021:  ACTION NEEDED:  The Navy has applied to expand use from 5 State Parks to 29 parks over Puget Sound, tripling the number of training sessions, increasing the number of trainees per session and adding high angle climbing in Deception Pass State Park. The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is considering the application at their regular meeting on January 28, 2021. A special meeting has been planned for January 26th from 4pm to 8pm to allow for public comments. You can express your opinion in writing to the Commission describing your park experiences and how you would be impacted if the commission allowed regular, unannounced Special Reconnaissance by US Navy Special Forces in state parks. Comment by January 26th by sending e-mail to commission@parks.wa.gov   For more information, go to:
