Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Director Larry Otos will join the board of the state Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition.

Otos was among seven people unanimously appointed, including former U.S. Congressman Norm Dicks.

Otos has been the Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation director since 1990. He’s also a Mount Vernon School Board member.

The Coalition has advocated for funding for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and the Land and Water Conservation Fund for more than 20 years. The programs help preserve the state’s parks, wildlife areas, waterways and working farms.

WWRP programs have helped pay for six projects in Mount Vernon, including the Skagit Riverwalk Trail and Kiwanis Park.

“The Coalition continues to be our state’s best advocate for our parks, farms and wildlife areas, ensuring all Washingtonians have access to our beautiful natural spaces,” Otos said in a press release. “I am looking forward to being a part of that history of success.”
