WI DNR offers seed dollars for projects

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The state Department of Natural Resources is offering to help fund select conservation monitoring projects.

The DNR's Citizen-Based Monitoring Partnership Program offers organizations seed money to start or expand volunteer monitoring programs.

The agency picks anywhere from 18 to 25 programs each year to receive up to $5,000.  Since 2004, DNR officials say 180 projects have benefited from $580,000 worth of funding.

Recent projects selected include stream monitoring in Buffalo County, water quality monitoring in Fond du Lac County, mussel monitoring on Eau Claire County streams and aquatic invasive species monitoring in Shawano County.

The DNR is accepting project proposals through midnight on April 26 and will notify the winners on May 24.
