A local organization will receive state funding to accomplish recreation improvement projects.
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has approved the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania for a nearly $99,000 Community and Watershed Forestry grant.
The money will be used to install about nine acres of riparian forest buffers and just over an acre of meadows along Ohio River Watershed waterways in Butler and Allegheny Counties.
Also part of this project will be landowner outreach and engagements, plantings and other site improvements, an increase in capacity of a native plant nursery, and watershed forestry workshops.
A total of over $31 million was awarded across the state through this program through funds from the American Rescue Plan Act.
