Leasing State Trust Lands for Agriculture
Lease revenue from the 1.1 million acres of state trust lands that DNR leases for agriculture and grazing helps fund the construction of public schools across Washington State. We work with lessees to assure that appropriate investments are made in the lands to keep them ecologically sustainable and productive while protecting public resources such as water, fish and wildlife.
