Grants available for volunteer projects
that benefit fish and wildlife

OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will begin accepting applications Jan. 2 from individuals and groups seeking financial support for volunteer projects that benefit fish and wildlife.

Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account (ALEA) grants fund up to five major categories of projects, including habitat restoration, research, education and outreach, facility development and artificial production. The grants will be awarded for projects undertaken between July 1, 2007, and June 30, 2009.

"ALEA grants are a great tool for individuals and organizations to make a positive impact on fish and wildlife throughout the state," said Josh Nicholas, WDFW cooperative projects coordinator. "Projects that provide educational and recreational opportunities directly benefit the public as well."

Applications must be received by March 31. Application materials are available on WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/volunter/vol-7.htm or by calling the department at (360) 902-2700.
