Washington is home to a unique and proud outdoor heritage, spanning a range of landscapes, cultural sites, wildlife, and recreational opportunities. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) acts as a guardian of this heritage for future generations while creating opportunities for people to experience and enjoy nature.
Everyone in Washington should have the chance to experience the beauty of our outdoors and have access to their favorite places. WDFW works to keep those places healthy for wildlife and people.
