Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.
In September and October 2015 the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe restored salmon habitat forming processes to approximately 15.5 acres of floodplain, numerous side channels, and 2,000 feet of the Dungeness River at river mile 5.8 near Sequim. This was accomplished by removing the environmentally harmful, creosoted 585-foot long RR Trestle and its associated fill from the river channel and the floodplain. The function of the RR Trestle – providing access across the river for the Olympic Discovery Trail – was replaced by the construction of a 750-foot long channel migration zone (CMZ) spanning, salmon-friendly pedestrian bridge, which was opened to the public on December 24, 2015. In early 2016 the construction corridor was revegetated with native trees and shrubs. Monitoring in 2017 has found that the construction corridor vegetation is reestablished at acceptable levels.
