Wildlife Conservation Funding Deadline Nears
Previous WHIP habitat improvement activities in Washington have included enhancement or restoration of shrub-steppe, native prairie, riparian, wetland, and native pollinator habitats.
Gaw encourages landowners who are interested in the program to contact their local NRCS office. While there is a continuous sign-up for the program, applications received by January 6 will be ranked and prioritized and considered for 2012 funding. For the location of your local NRCS office, visit the NRCS website at www.wa.nrcs.usda.gov or call 509-323-2900.
