The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program will seek $100 million in funding next year, including $15.8 million for North Central Washington projects. The State Legislature will consider these projects when they write the budget next year.
Excerpt: “Projects that made the list in North Central Washington range from acquisition of a Winthrop-area golf course and several other land purchases to riverfront conservation easements and recreation land improvements.
A record number of projects totaling $272 million in requests were sought this year, and 115 of the 370 applications were selected.”
