New NRCS Contract Awarded

Written by bhcmember on May 16th, 2011

BHR just won a large Natural Resources Conservation Service )NRCS) grant through the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).  The generous award was given for past conservation practices we’ve implemented on our ranch, and also as an incentive to implement further habitat and forest improvement practices.  The contract spans 5 years with lump sums paid every year.  The Ranch will be putting the money to good use upgrading stream crossings, planting pollinator habitats, continuing with our aggressive timber stand improvement (TSI) and financing a host of other conservation projects.  This new CSP grant adds to our EQIP grant from 2009, and allows us the freedom to implement rigorous habitat improvement projects which further enhance the beauty and value of our land.
