The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to expand and enhance longleaf pine ecosystem restoration and management across longleaf pine’s historical range, as well as the restoration and enhancement of bottomland hardwood forests within priority focal areas.
Hurricanes Florence and Michael heavily impacted significant areas of the longleaf pine range in 2018. Proposals that address hurricane impacts to longleaf pine habitat and longleaf-associated species will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Priority will be given to projects that address habitat and species recovery efforts on longleaf sites previously supported through the Longleaf Stewardship Fund.
Priority will be given to projects that effectively implement one or more of the strategies below to improve longleaf pine and bottomland hardwood habitats and populations of associated wildlife species, including red-cockaded woodpecker, gopher tortoise, Bachman’s sparrow, and Northern bobwhite quail, as well as songbirds, waterfowl, reptiles and amphibians.
