Read an editorial in the Wenatchee World celebrating doubling the funding for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and its impact on the Wenatchee area.
Excerpt: “This will accomplish two important things for Wenatchee, benefits to enjoy even if you never set a boot on the trail. One is preservation of open space, the views, the scenery. This gives our community its look and feel, which makes a contribution to our quality of life that can hardly be underestimated. Its why many of us choose to live here. The second is a recreational asset a beautiful trail system so close to the city it is only minutes away. Few places in the United States have such appealing amenities, and that is paying off, even now.
Lasting good comes from small appropriations, given enough sense and foresight. We are seeing it here.”
