Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program
This page is the one-stop-shop for our 2013 Washington Wildlife & Recreation Program Campaign. Keep checking back here for the most up to date files, press clips, talking points and more!
The Coalition requests that the legislature appropriate $90 million in the 2013-15 capital budget to fund over 100 projects towards the preservation of wildlife habitat, the protection of working farms and the creation of neighborhood parks and ballfields in communities across Washington.
Please take a moment to ask your legislators to stand up for outdoor recreation and conservation in your community.
For more questions about the campaign or how to get funding for projects in your area, join our mailing list or give us a call at 206-748-0082.
