Dear Representative/Senator [Last Name]:

I’m a constituent in your district and I’m reaching out today to tell you that I support the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program projects in my district.

These investments are vital for securing equitable outdoor recreation access for our communities and conserving vital wildlife habitat. Funding the WWRP will improve the mental and physical health of our residents while preserving the economic impact of our working forests and farms.

In fact, WWRP projects like the [Project Name] will only become a reality with your support!

Please vote to fund the WWRP grant program at $140 million this biennium, so that [Project Name] will improve the quality of life in our district, and so that more communities will enjoy access to safe outdoor spaces.

Thank you for your consideration and your continued service on behalf of all Washingtonians!

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
