Ebey Island Recreation Access Development

Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to construct new facilities at Ebey Island Unit of the Snoqualmie Wildlife Area in Snohomish County. The scope of this project is to develop a new gravel parking lot, install fencing, gates, and a hand-carry boat launch and landing. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this grant are hunting, non-motorized boating, wildlife viewing, and photography.
