Reardan Audubon Lake Trail Development

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 Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to develop wildlife viewing facilities at Reardan’s Audubon Lake, west of Spokane. The area is a network of 277 acres of wetlands, vernal ponds, grasslands, channeled scablands, and uplands supporting more than 250 species of birds and other wildlife. Work will include building restrooms, trails, and two wildlife viewing blinds.
