Inslee Appoints Three Members to the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board

February 2, 2017

Governor Inslee has appointed three to the board that oversees grant fund distribution for recreation and conservation in Washington state.

Governor Inslee recently appointed two new members, as well as one returning, to the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Funding Board, which awards $250 million in grants for Washington state recreation and conservation each biennium. These grants go towards creating recreational opportunities like camping, hiking, boating, and hunting, and for the protection/preservation of wildlife habitat and working farms and forests.

The two new members are civil engineer and Seattleite Kathryn Gardow and Methow Trails program manager Danica Ready. The returning member is Michael Deller, a retired executive director of the Port of Everett. All three bring a passion for championing Washington’s outdoor spaces.

“We are fortunate in Washington to have many people who are passionate about the outdoors and willing to serve on this board. These three talented people have the skills needed to ensure that Washingtonians have great places for outdoor recreation and that we conserve the best parts of our natural heritage,” said Inslee.
