The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition is a non-profit citizens group founded in a historic bipartisan effort by former Washington Governors Dan Evans and Mike Lowry. Its members consist of a diverse group of over 135 organizations representing conservation, business, recreation, hunting, fishing, farming, and community interests. In 1989, the Coalition founded the Washington Wildlife and Recreation grant program, a state grant program that provides funding to protect habitat, preserve working farms and create new local and state parks. Since the program's inception, the Coalition has advocated for state funding for WWRP grants, raising over $550 million for 921 neighborhood parks and ball fields, biking and walking trails, local beaches, boat launches, wildlife, habitat, state parks and working farms.
Washington Wildlife and Recreation Foundation was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2005 to 2006.
