If ethics are a consideration, or an interest in having your dollars go where your values are advanced, it would be worth considering how the money from Discover passes are divided between DNR, WDFW and State Parks. I don’t know the answer but I’d guess that WDFW gets more benefit from purchase of a fishing license than it does from the purchase of a Discover Pass. So, if you like what WDFW is doing and spend your birding time at WDFW lands in west Skagit County, a fishing license may be the choice that better suits your interests.

Subject: Re: [Tweeters] Parking Permits
I’m not sure that’s an ethical answer Kelly. I think we should pay our fair share. Also my husband and I are considering buying duck stamps from now on so that we are doing our best to help. I know some can’t afford much. But if they can spend the gas, they should buy the pass.
What kind of parking permits are required at various spots these days, esp. in Skagit County? I remember the yellow sticker of yore, but that's been phased out, right? Has something been put in its place?
