Design overview:
The site has a clean, organized and efficient design for the purpose of handling an overload of content and information. A bit sterile in look and feel, the navigation filters content for the users to search what they’re looking for by category. There is a search box.

Audience:
Residents and visitors to the State of Washington who are interested in outdoor activities, local wildlife and conservation.

Agency/Site Goals:
To achieve our mission, we will continue to focus our activities on the following four goals:

  1. Conserve and protect native fish and wildlife;
  2. Provide sustainable fishing, hunting and other wildlife-related recreational experiences;
  3. Use sound business practices, deliver high-quality customer service;
  4. Maintain a highly skilled and motivated workforce.
