Representatives of the Ruffed Grouse Society (PEI) are offering a one-time funding opportunity for PEI Watershed Groups to complete habitat enhancement work focused in upland areas on PEI. Priority species are Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock although projects focusing on other upland species will be considered (i.e., songbirds). The sum of money available is not large (~$4000) and it is anticipated that the average funds granted for each project will be approximately $500.
Funding is available for equipment and supplies that are directly related to upland habitat enhancement such as tree guards, tree planting equipment, pruning equipment and trees and plants not covered through the Greening Space Program. Expenditures not covered by this funding include: administrative costs, professional services, labour, mileage, monitoring and research.
Application deadline is April 1st, 2016.
PEI Watershed Alliance is administering this fund however all funding decisions will be made by members of Ruffed Grouse Society (PEI).
