OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee appointed Bob Bugert, director of the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, to serve on the 10-member Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board.
The board administers state and federal funds to protect salmon habitat. Since its formation in 1999, the board has awarded more than $625 million to nearly 2,500 projects.
Bugert said he is honored to serve on the board and believes that funding to recover salmon also contributes to an investment in vibrant communities.
