Project Description:

Washoe Meadows Community through its Protect Washoe Meadows Project seeks to educate legislators and other elected and appointed officials as well as members of the public about the resources of the Washoe Meadows State Park and make the park more accessible to all. The project includes legal challenges to defend the park from irresponsible commercial development and protect the park’s natural, cultural and recreational resources. Washoe Meadows Community is also aiming to prevent implementation of a precedent-setting downgrade of protections for California State park land. The grant is to support legal work, scientific data collection, advocacy, and public education aimed at protecting ecologically sensitive areas within the Washoe Meadows State Park.
