Conservation and restoration of the land around us is the crux of a new grant being offered through the Waneta Expansion Project.
Partners in the project—Fortis Inc., Columbia Power Corporation and Columbia Basin Trust—are still accepting applications for environmental conservation and restoration projects for this year’s Waneta Terrestrial Compensation Program.
The program provides up to $50,000 annually to projects in the Waneta area that promote conservation and restoration through research, physical works and other on-the-ground or applied projects.
The Waneta Terrestrial Compensation Program is an opportunity for organizations to undertake projects which benefit the natural environment, which includes the Greater Trail region.
Eligible projects include research, habitat creation (restoration, rehabilitation), habitat protection, species inventories, educational programs, development of management plans, weed control and land acquisition.
The deadline for grant submissions is Thursday.
