Support for Washington’s Wildlife & Recreation Program

PCC joined numerous organizations and individuals to support $130 million in funding for the Washington Wildlife & Recreation Program (WWRP).

For nearly 30 years, the WWRP has been our state’s premier tool for habitat conservation and outdoor recreation opportunities. The program has played a significant role in our state’s landscape and quality of life, investing more than $1.4 billion into state and local parks, trails, wildlife habitat, protecting farmland and other working lands, and more.

Adequate funding for the WWRP is more important than ever to address our state’s rapid population growth, the need to preserve our shrinking green spaces, and the strong demand for recreational opportunities. We believe this amount is necessary to support recreation and conservation efforts statewide and to preserve Washington’s natural heritage for future generations.
