With major contributions by the CalAm Forestry Team, the Calaveras RCD submitted two CalFire climate change initiative concept grants in late February.
One grant would improve forest conditions north of Murphys CA. The other would do the same in the Sandy Gulch Region by West Point, CA.
We hope to be invited to submit full proposals in the coming months.
SInce our RCD recieves no support from County or State agencies, we are funded by the competitive grant process.
We are continually looking for new grant opportunities, including taking suggestions from the public.
