The state legislature’s failure to pass a capital budget has resulted in over $45.7M in new park projects put on hold as well as a wave of layoffs. All across Washington, state parks projects are in jeopardy, and this impacts some of your favorite places, as well as park services you care about.
There are projects in limbo across the state including trails, campgrounds, moorages, environmental learning centers and other sorely needed facilities. The state budget impasse has caused direct and adverse impacts on improving buildings, roads, trails, utilities and stewarding natural and cultural resources.
These suspended projects and park staff reductions will directly affect you every time you visit. Give today for important park projects, programs, enhancements and legislative work to restore support for our amazing state parks. We have secured a matching gift to help us reach our $100,000 goal. We will match every dollar you donate, up to a maximum of $10,000.
Your gift helps support places, projects and programs you enjoy.
