Event:  The Northwest Maritime Center on the Port Townsend waterfront celebrates its grand opening this afternoon. When fully completed, the $8.2 million campus will include classrooms, conference space, boatbuilding shops, a chandlery and more. The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program contributed a total of $483,000 to the Northwest Maritime Center.  

Logistics: Northwest Maritime Center Groundbreaking Celebration: “Make Way Together” will be held July 3, 2008—3:00 p.m. at Pope Marine Park on Water Street and Madison in Port Townsend.

The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition leverages public funding for parks, trails and working farms. In the 2007 legislative session, the Coalition was the driving force behind doubling the appropriation for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) to $100 million.  The WWRP is a government grant program that funds park, wildlife habitat and farmland preservation projects throughout Washington. This victory represents the largest single investment in parks and green space in state history and funds 142 projects all over the state.
