Morning Star NRCA Boulder-Greider Bridges

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 Natural Resources will use this grant for bridge development in the Morning Star Natural Resources Conservation Area, located in east Snohomish County. Development will include installation of three new pedestrian bridges on the Boulder-Greider trail system, which accesses existing campgrounds at Little Greider Lake, Big Greider Lake and Boulder Lake, all in the Boulder-Greider Landscape. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is improved backcountry hiking.
