What is the WWRP?

The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) is a state grant program that creates and conserves local and state parks, wildlife habitat and working farms. The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office administers WWRP grants, and the legislature funds the program.

Over 100 outdoor recreation, conservation projects ranked as state priorities, need funding from legislature

More than 100 recreation, wildlife habitat and working lands projects around the state of Washington have been ranked as priority projects by the Recreation Conservation Office (RCO). Whether the 33 counties and dozens of communities who would benefit from these projects are able to complete them is dependent on adequate funding of the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP). Learn more here.

Sign our letter to Governor Inslee
