NRCS Accepting Applications for Conservation Assistance from North-Central PA Forest Landowners

Applications due March 17th


The Pennsylvania USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting applications from north-central Pennsylvania forest landowners for financial assistance to apply conservation practices that enhance forest ecosystems.


As announced in a December 2016 news release, Pennsylvania NRCS is providing $350,000 to this project, entitled ‘Sustaining Pennsylvania’s Oak Ecosystems through Partnership in Forest Management’ to improve and protect the health and resiliency of oak ecosystems.


This unique public-private lands project, selected for the Joint Chief’s Landscape Restoration Partnership, includes an area that spans 15 counties across the predominantly forested northern tier of Pennsylvania, including Bradford, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lycoming, McKean, Potter, Sullivan, Tioga, Warren, and Wyoming (see map). The entire area canvasses 4.6 million acres of watersheds with greatly reduced brook trout populations and feed into the Ohio River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds.
