State Senator Steve Litzow (R-Mercer Island) was recently honored with an award from Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.
Litzow, along with Joe Fain and Andy Hill, earned the award for work on conservation. The trio worked during the last legislative session to continue funding the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP), which had been slated for elimination in the governor’s budget.
“The level of access we enjoy when it comes to natural resources and outdoor recreation opportunities goes a long way toward defining the quality of life across our state,” said Litzow. “I have yet to see any party labels on these valuable assets — there are no Republican rivers, no Democratic baseball diamonds — so I’m more than ready to work across the aisle when it comes to investments that help preserve and enhance them.”
The WWRP has funded projects along the Greenway corridor such as the John Wayne Trail.
The three were honored in a ceremony on Sept. 27.
