Legislative Day 2020
February 6, 2020
Join the Washington Wildlife & Recreation Coalition and the Washington Recreation & Park Association at our annual Parks and Great Outdoors Legislative Day in Olympia! Help us advocate for our state’s premier outdoors fund, the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP), and tell your legislators why Washington’s parks, wildlife habitat areas, and working lands deserve to be funded. Never met with a legislator before? Don’t worry; we will make sure you have everything you need.
