Forest and farm owners are invited to attend a free workshop sponsored by Washington State University Extension and the Snoqualmie Watershed Forum on a number of federal, state and local grant and cost-share programs available for area landowners. The workshop will be presented on Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Snoqualmie Library, 7824 Center Blvd. S.E., Snoqualmie..
Many forest and farm owners have dream projects to enhance their property, improve wildlife habitat and improve property management practices, but don’t have the funds to get started. This workshop will provide information on many of the cost share programs available to partially fund or in some cases even fully fund these projects. Examples of some of the projects might include; fish barrier removal, tree planting, invasive species removal, riparian fencing and much more. The workshop also will discuss how to qualify for specific grants, steps to applying and where to get assistance with applications
The program will feature speakers from the Snoqualmie Watershed Forum, King Conservation District, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service, the Washington Department of Natural Resources and King County. They will provide information on their specific programs and how to get the process rolling so you can get those dream projects off the ground.
