Coldwater Conservation Planning Grants
Coldwater Conservation Plans are useful in building local awareness and support for the long-term stewardship of coldwater streams and their surrounding watersheds. The plans are meant to identify potential problems and opportunities for stream conservation, and may often also lead to more detailed watershed studies or projects, ultimately improving the health of coldwater ecosystems.
Grants of approximately $5,000 will be awarded for the creation of a Coldwater Conservation plan that will ultimately conserve and protect the coldwater streams of Pennsylvania. This grant is meant to:
- Gather existing data about the coldwater ecosystem;
- Identify potential impacts, threats, problems and opportunities to our coldwater streams;
- Formulate a plan of action for proposed conservation and protection strategies; and
- Build community awareness and support for the conservation of our coldwater streams.
