In 2018, WRPA will again partner with our colleagues at the Washington Wildlife & Recreation Coalition (WWRC) for the annual Parks and Great Outdoors Legislative Day in Olympia!

The day provides an opportunity to urge lawmakers to provide maximum funding for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program, to detail the importance of a 2017-19 Capital Budget and dedicated funding for outdoor recreation, and more.

Never met with a legislator before? Don't worry; we will make sure you have everything you need.

Legislative Day Events Include:

  • Two optional, pre-event conference call opportunities to learn about logistics for the day and get all your questions about the events answered.
  • A morning briefing at the Women’s Club of Olympia – typically starting at 7:30 a.m.
  • A noon-hour briefing from key legislative leaders – this year’s event will take place in the basement of the John L. O’Brien House Building.
  • Meetings throughout the day with state legislators – you can either set up your own or work through the WWRC which graciously arranges many of these.
  • A 5:30-7 p.m. reception at the Governor's Mansion to cap the day – you can meet with Governor, talk with legislators, get to know outdoor recreation stakeholders better, and more.
