OLYMPIA The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is still looking for applications from volunteer groups and individuals seeking financial support for local projects that benefit fish and wildlife. The first deadline for applying is April 30, 2001.

Dave Gadwa, coordinator of WDFW's Volunteer Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Enhancement Program, said the agency plans to distribute $1.6 million in local grants over a two-year period, beginning July 1.

"These grants are intended to allow volunteers to purchase the supplies and materials they require to perform approved projects throughout the state," Gadwa said. "Volunteers supply the brains and muscle, and the state pays the bills."

Typical projects funded in the past involve habitat restoration, improving access to fish and wildlife recreation for the disabled, fish and wildlife research projects, public education and projects which rear and release fish and wildlife.

Application packages may be obtained by contacting Dave Gadwa, WDFW Cooperative Projects Coordinator at 600 Capitol Way, North, Olympia 98501-1091.
