Each monetary donation is most appreciated. We are constantly searching for new funding sources through private donations, grants, and other events such as our Rod Meseberg Spring Walleye Classic. Many clubs and organizations have also been actively donating. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Bureau of Reclamation have been very active financial contributors. We do need to generate approximately $145,000 each year to achieve our goals. Currently we have 1,390 habitat boxes completed and placed.
Vision Beyond Completion
The habitat committee (CWFAC) has been issued state and federal permits to put up to 620 habitat boxes into the reservoir, each year for 20 years. Every year that this occurs, there will be periodic inspections of the existing habitat, to verify effectiveness and condition. This will be accomplished by the use of an underwater camera system.
