Category Overview

The State Lands Restoration and Enhancement category provides funding to two state agencies to help repair damaged plant and animal habitat. These grants focus on resource preservation and protection of public lands. Projects in this category help bring important natural areas and resources back to their original functions by improving the self sustaining and ecological functionality of sites.

Project Highlights

The Washington Department of Natural Resources used this grant to restore about 125 acres in the Washougal Oaks Natural Area Preserve and Natural Resources Conservation Area. Work included developing weed management and restoration plans, mapping the locations of non-native plants, controlling weeds, removing or girdling douglas fir trees that would have outgrown and shaded the oaks, and replanting the area.
