Dear Tribal Partners (blind copied),

in our continuing effort to coordinate and collaborate with Tribal governments, the Carlsbad Fish and Wildlife Office invites you to attend our next Tribal coordination meeting. This event will be hosted by the Barona Band of Mission Indians at the Barona Resort and Casino Golf Events Center, 1932 Wildcat Canyon Rd, Lakeside, California on September 29, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Hotel reservations at government or Tribal rates are available on request.

A continental breakfast will be provided. Please RSVP via an email reply by Tuesday September 26 to assist in planning (simply reply to this email).

The purpose of the coordination meetings is to facilitate communication among the Service and Tribal governments Endangered Species Act issues that may be of interest or concern to your Tribe. The meetings also provide a forum to discuss any other plant and wildlife resource management issues of interest or concern to San Diego County Tribal governments.
