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 Natural Resources will use this development grant to construct a trail at Camas Meadows Natural Area Preserve, in Chelan County. Development will include an informational kiosk, five interpretive signs, and a less than one mile trail. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be formal public access and a self-guided educational trail with opportunities to view rare plant species and wildlife.
