Inholdings and Adjacent Properties 2010
- Funded in 2011
State Parks will use this grant to buy private property that is within or adjacent to park boundaries. From time-to-time, State Parks learns of desirable properties adjacent to or actually within the boundaries of a park. Some of these properties are small and consequently may not compete well during a competitive grant process. Others must be purchased quickly. In the past, grants have been used to buy property to remove undesirable neighbors (tavern) from a park, to obtain legal access to a park, to acquire desirable property listed with a real estate agent, and to buy land with high natural resources value. This grant is from the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program.
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.
