North Willapa Bay Recreation Development – Phase 1

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

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) developed recreational access to the Cedar River and Nemah River Wildlife Units along Willapa Bay in Grays Harbor County. This project will allowed WDFW to provide hiking and wildlife viewing opportunities along Willapa Bay. WDFW developed gravel parking lots, kiosks and trail access at each site. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this grant will be hiking and wildlife viewing.
