June 29, 2013

The state legislature approved $65 million in funding for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP), including funds for the Spokane Centennial Trail and Spokane County Conservation Futures.

Excerpt: “Preserving critical habitat through the WWRP means all sportsmen and women will continue to have access to the outdoors,” said Barry Nilson of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. “Hunters, anglers, and others will continue to see healthy wildlife populations and recreational opportunities across our great state. We hope to bring public access to even more outdoor enthusiasts in the next biennium.”

Projects funded by the WWRP will protect wildlife habitat, create new opportunities for outdoor recreation, and keep farms working across the state.”
