Lewis River Access

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

This is an acquisition request for 50 acres on the north and east forks of the Lewis River. The property has excellent waterfowl and small game habitat, with opportunities for wildlife observation and fishing.
