Upland Restoration on Tamarac NWR


The Friends of Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge (Friends of Tamarac) seeks $21,500 in grant funding to assist Tamarac NWR in the restoration of approximately 100 acres of coniferous forest for the benefit of wildlife. The project consists of 3 or 4 conifer restoration sites. The conifer restoration will be planted with either a mixture of red/white pine or jack pine seedlings which is dependent on site condition. Multiple habitat and species benefits are expected. Habitat benefits include additional young forest acreage, reduced forest fragmentation, increased forest block size, conversion from exotic species to native species, and restoring native conifers to the landscape.
