WDFW now accepting grant applications for volunteer fish and wildlife projects

OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is now accepting grant applications for volunteer projects designed to benefit fish and wildlife species across the state.

The department expects to award approximately $200,000 in grants for projects undertaken by volunteer individuals and organizations between Oct. 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005.

The deadline for applying is Aug. 31, 2004.

In past years, individual grants awarded from the state Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account (ALEA) have ranged from $300 to $80,000, said Denise Box, who administers WDFW's volunteer grant program

"These grants have enabled volunteers to do some great things for fish and wildlife," said Box, noting that past awards have supported everything from a mule deer study to salmon rearing operations. Dozens of other grants have gone to support habitat-restoration activities, improve access to outdoor recreation and conduct a wide range of natural resource education programs.

Applicants must complete a one-page application form and provide a one-page description of the proposed project, a one-page budget proposal and a single-page map of the contemplated project site.

Applications for volunteer grants are available through the WDFW website ( or by contacting the department directly at 360-902-2700.
