Applications are being accepted by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for grants to protect Pennsylvania's non-game animals, native plants and their habitat. Applications are due June 30.
For more than 25 years the Wild Resource Conservation Program has helped to protect Pennsylvania's native biodiversity by supporting research, conservation, and education projects.
This year WRCP is soliciting grant applications in five areas: effects of climate change on biodiversity; Internet-based educational tools; wildlife protection plan priorities; wild plant management; and general biodiversity projects.
