The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to renovate the Buzzard Lake water access site in the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area, northwest of Okanogan. The department will install a toilet, renovate the parking area, improve paths, and renovate the hand-launch boat area on the lake. The site is used for boating, wildlife viewing, and fishing.
