Would you like to see more and better trails completed around Washington? This month offers four opportunities to testify in person about the projects you want to see funded by the state.
The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program provides funding for constructing and rehabilitating dozens of trails each year - in this challenging time for the budget, you can make a difference for trails by speaking out. You can read a full list of the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition's proposed projects on their website.
