The Young Forest Initiative is a special effort to build young forest habitat in Northern Wisconsin.
Through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, NRCS will help with projects that benefit wildlife, particularly bird species that are in decline, through the creation or improvement of young forest habitat. Three practices are eligible:
• Early Successional Habitat Development and Management
• Brush Management
• Forest Stand Improvement
Applicants with an existing forest management plan in place will be high priority for funding. To get started, contact your forester or other natural resources professional to complete or update your forest plan. Then contact your local NRCS office at the USDA Service Center for your county before July 11, to apply for EQIP.
Registration required: No
