It’s budget time in the Washington Legislature!

Our representatives in the House and Senate are starting the hard work of creating budgets to fund our state’s priorities.

Clean air, clean water, healthy forests, healthy rivers and a healthy Puget Sound are at the top of The Nature Conservancy’s list. State funding is essential to protect and strengthen these natural resources on which our quality of life and our livelihoods depend. The Conservancy and our allies in the Washington Environmental Priorities Coalition and Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition are working every day to keep these priorities top of mind for the Legislature as well.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as the budget process moves forward. Your voice will be crucial as these decisions are being made.
