Deadlines for USDA Rangeland and Woodland Projects Fast Approaching

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:28:20 CDT

Deadlines for USDA Rangeland and Woodland Projects Fast Approaching Two new projects from USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Oklahoma will provide technical and financial assistance to landowners for rangeland and woodland improvement. Both projects are part of NRCS’s popular Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Those interested are encouraged to apply with their local USDA service center before the deadline on April 29, 2016.

Participation in the monarch butterfly initiative is open to producers and conservation partners throughout Oklahoma and will help make butterfly-friendly improvements to farms and ranches. Projects will focus on pasture health to provide good forage for livestock and food for monarchs.

“America’s farmers and ranchers are stewards of the land, and this effort helps them make voluntary improvements that benefit working lands and monarchs,” said Gary O’Neill, NRCS state conservationist in Oklahoma.

The Arkansas/Oklahoma Woodland Restoration Project is open to landowners in Latimer, Le Flore, Pushmataha and McCurtain Counties. The project will provide assistance to improve the health and resiliency of forest ecosystems where public and private lands meet. By restoring woodland areas, participants will improve water quality and quantity, improve wildlife habitat, reduce wildfire losses and enhance economic development in chronically impoverished counties.

“The health of our forests and our rural communities very often go hand in hand,” said O’Neill. “NRCS works with public and private landowners through a range of programs and partnerships to decrease the threat of wildfire, restore forest habitat and increase economic and other opportunities for the families and businesses that make their homes near woodlands.”
