Nemah Tidelands 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

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to acquire about 103 acres, including one mile of undeveloped shoreline, on Willapa Bay 20 miles south of Raymond in Pacific County. This property allows for recreational activities such as harvesting of oysters and hard shell clams, wildlife viewing, kayaking, waterfowl hunting, and access to explore the unique shoreline of Willapa Bay. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this grant are active and passive recreation.
