Rec/Conserv Funding Board

RCW 77.85.110, 79A.25

The Recreation and Conservation Office and its associated funding boards administer a variety of grant programs that conserve and improve Washington’s great outdoors. The office provides leadership, funding, coordination and technical assistance to government agencies, Native American tribes, nonprofit organizations and private landowners to create opportunities for outdoor recreation, conserve the best of state’s wild lands and wildlife and recover salmon from the brink of extinction. The office provides administrative support, grant program management and program development to four independent boards: the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board, the Salmon Recovery Funding Board, the Invasive Species Council and the Habitat and Recreation Lands Coordinating Group. It also houses the Governor’s Salmon Recovery Office.

Agency Mission

The Recreation and Conservation Office is an exemplary partner that provides statewide leadership and funding to protect and improve the best of Washington’s natural and outdoor recreation resources, now and for future generations.
