Federal funds available for landowners to create and improve grassland wildlife habitat in and around the AuGres MI area (saginaw bay). Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials remind landowners in the Saginaw Bay and River Raisin basins that federal funds are available to establish, improve and maintain quality grasslands for wildlife.
The $100,000.00 fund is available through matching grants. The timing of this couldn’t be better as the DNR embarks on pheasant restoration initiative. This money is available in all 3 of the priority areas and should help landowners turn idle or degraded land into quality upland wildlife habitat.
Landowners who are interested in improving their grassland habitat should contact their local USDA Service Center.
