Free Money

President Bush feels so good about his inauguration today, that he wants to give you money to protect the environment. That's what the official government press release says (mostly), so it can't be wrong.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced it is seeking proposals for private lands conservation funding through its Private Stewardship Grants Program. About $6.5 million is available FY 2005 through this grant program to support on-the-ground conservation efforts on private lands.

As envisioned by President Bush, this program provides Federal grants on a competitive basis to individuals and groups engaged in voluntary conservation efforts on private lands that benefit imperiled species including federally listed endangered or threatened species as well as proposed, candidate and other at-risk species. Landowners and their partners may submit proposals directly to the Service for funding to support those efforts.

For more information, go to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service website.

An area that was supposed to be a windmill field is instead the latest aquisition by the Solano Land Trust in California. The trust has closed on 2300 acres south of Fairfield between Sacramento and San Francisco. Pacific Gas & Electric had abandoned plans for the windmill site.

Finally, thanks to New Environmentalism.Org for making Nature Noted the Featured Blog. It's nice to be featured.
