Wildlife Grants Available

(From staff reports)

Owners and renters of land with power lines could receive cash grants
and professional wildlife management advice to help Georgia ensure healthy
wildlife populations.

The project is called Wildlife Incentives for Non-Game and Game
Species and offers grants up to $1,350 to groups and individuals
interestied in managing power line rights of way for wildlife.

Funded by Georgia Power, Georgia Transmission Corp., and the Municipal
Electric Authority of Georgia, Project WINGS is a rights-of-way management
campaign designed to convert brush-covered transmission areas into a
productive wildlife habitat. It is a statewide program, endorsed by many
private wildlife organizations and has earned national recognition. The
U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service is the
contact agency for those applying for the grant.


Hi All

Many of these areas cross rivers and streams so there appears to be a
chance here to protect aquatic life as well as the land animals for which
the program was designed.
