Volunteers can help direct outdoor grants



OLYMPIA — The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office needs about 70 volunteers to help determine how millions of dollars in state grants should be invested in the state’s outdoor areas.

Volunteers should be familiar with one or more of several outdoor categories that include: parks and shorelines, trails, farms and ranches, wildlife habitat conservation and shoreline conservation.

To apply, send a completed application and support materials to the recreation and conservation office by March 30. For applications and more information, visit http://www.rco.wa.gov/grants/advisory_cmte.shtml.
