We have created this web site to celebrate all that Nature has provided in the Pacific North West. Being in tune with Nature and Mother Earth provides us with untold benefits. These pages will help us understand this.
Washington is fortunate to have a rich diversity of habitats, fish and wildlife species. A large variety of year-around and seasonal outdoor recreational opportunities exist here that have become part of our tradition and heritage in the Pacific Northwest.
"Go Play Outside" is a new effort with the objective of increasing interest, support, and participation in outdoor recreation. It will help WDFW reconnect with traditional users and build bridges to new ones. Included in the initiative will be public workshops on fishing, hunting, shooting sports, and wildlife watching sponsored by WDFW or presented through partnerships. This initiative will create new partnerships and expand existing ones; recruit new outdoor receptionists; encourage mentoring efforts; and provide information, outreach and education to the public.
