State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will use this grant to purchase 55 acres, consisting of 3 parcels, adjacent to and included in the long-term boundary of Moran State Park on Orcas Island in San Juan County. This property is located on the park’s shoreline on the Strait of Georgia in the northeast corner of the park and indcludes low-bank waterfront. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this project are trail use and water access.
