What is the difference between the WWRP and the Coalition?

The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition, is the non-profit citizens group that serves as the watchdog and advocate for the WWRP grant program.  The WWRP is a state grant program funded by the legislature and administered by the RCO.

The Coalition does not receive any of the funding that we advocate for, we rely entirely on the generous contributions of individuals, organizations, and corporations for our operations.

What is LWCF?

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is the premier federal grant program to expand and protect our local, state and national parks, wildlife refuges, working forests, and trails.

The program has been chronically underfunded, leading to a number of missed opportunities for investing in important areas in Washington state. The Coalition works to ensure our Congressional delegation provides robust funding for LWCF.
