Landscape-scale ecological restoration grants in Nevada: Apply by February 17, 2017

The Nevada Division of Forestry is soliciting pre-proposals for a competitive grant program: Landscape Scale Restoration.

Nevada’s urban and rural ecosystems are continuously threatened by invasions of non-native species, vegetation diseases, development disturbances, unsustainable management and destructive natural events such as floods and wildfires.

NDF is pleased to announce a funding opportunity made available through the USDA Forest Service, which enables cooperators to identify Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) needs and apply for funding to address those needs.

Funds may be used to implement restoration treatments that improve or restore urban/rural forests and rangelands, water resources, riparian areas and wildlife habitat. Projects that mitigate wildfire behavior, noxious weed infestations and negative ecosystem impacts are also eligible.

Proposals due: February 17, 2017 by 5pm (Pacific).
