OLYMPIA, Wash. - Current proposals by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to acquire land for fish and wildlife habitat and public recreation are now on view on the department’s website.
Jennifer Quan, WDFW lands division manager, said the new webpage is designed to give the public an opportunity to learn about land-acquisition proposals before the department seeks funding sources in spring and summer.
Details of 21 proposed land acquisitions, identified by the department as priorities for future funding, are available at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/acquisitions/. Previous acquisitions and those already under way are not included on the website.
The statewide forum brings together state agencies, local governments, non-governmental organizations, tribes, landowners and other citizens to share ideas about state land actions for habitat and recreation purposes. More information on the forum is available at http://www.rco.wa.gov/boards/hrlcg.shtml
