Land acquisition is an essential tool used by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to meet its legislative mandate of preserving, protecting and perpetuating fish and wildlife, while providing sustainable recreational and commercial opportunities.

This web page describes WDFW's proposals for new land acquisition during 2015-17 and provides a virtual tour of 13 proposals. These projects were developed by WDFW staff and approved by the department's executive management team to conserve important fish and wildlife habitats. They do not include acquisition projects already under way.

Most of the individual projects are described within their "geographic envelope" – the general area that includes the parcels being considered for acquisition. An envelope is used for planning purposes only. Should the department desire to acquire a particular parcel. WDFW will contact the landowner to determine his or her interest before initiating any acquisition proposal. The department develops acquisition agreements only with willing property owners.

WDFW will not use operating budget funds for these land acquisitions. Instead, the department will seek state and federal grants for most of the proposed acquisitions. Potential grant sources include the State of Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and federal grants through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, including the Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund (also known as "Section 6" funds) and the North American Wetlands Conservation Act.
