Preserving public access to pristine shores and creating environmentally-friendly facilities take time, care, and deliberation. Washington Water Trails Association works with public and private partners to create outstanding recreational opportunities for boaters in non-motorized craft. Some issues are defined by law and well defined; among these are:
- Recreational immunity in Revised Code of Washington
- Shoreline Management Act
- Use of public funds for water trail facilities on private lands
- Public Trust Doctrine
WWTA encourages creative partnerships to preserve public access to the state’s waters and shorelines. It is possible for private landowners to receive property tax relief for conservation easements while protecting land for future generations.
