FOMA Board member Jocelyn Akins visited Bird Creek Meadows on August 5, 2017 and took this picture of grazing cattle in subalpine meadows near Crooked Creek. It has been a continuing project of FOMA to monitor these intrusions and to press the National Forest, the cattle permittee, and the Yakama Nation to build better fences to keep the cattle where they are supposed to be – at lower altitudes. This evidence has already received a response from the Forest Service, and FOMA board members will be visiting and monitoring conditions for the rest of the season.
