Methow Valley will benefit substantially from WWRP grants now that the Capital Budget has passed.
Excerpt: The Washington Wildlife & Recreation Program (WWRP) received $80 million with the recent passage of the state’s $4.3 billion capital budget. Included in the funding are two projects in or near the Methow Valley that are funded under WWRP’s land-restoration and enhancement category.
The budget also releases $488,000 in grants for three salmon-recovery projects in the Methow Valley.
Projects under WWRP’s land-restoration category provide funding to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to help repair damaged plant and animal habitat, according to information from WWRP. These grants focus on resource preservation and protection of public lands.
