NATURAL HERITAGE PROGRAM SMALL GRANT APPLICATION PERIOD OPENS
     
LANSING--Applications for the 2001 Natural Heritage Program 
Small Grants are being accepted by the Department of Natural 
Resources for projects to be completed in 2001. Eligible 
projects are those which benefit Michigan's nongame wildlife 
and endangered plants, animals and their habitats.
Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded through Michigan's 
Nongame Wildlife Fund, a fund supported through citizen 
contributions. Individuals, groups and governmental units 
are eligible to submit proposals. The application deadline 
is December 1.
"These grants offer an excellent opportunity for people to 
become directly involved with research, management and 
educational projects relating to native nongame wildlife and 
plants," said Raymond Rustem, Natural Heritage Program 
Supervisor.
Project proposals need to reflect goals of the Natural 
Heritage Program which are to identify, protect, manage and 
restore native plants and animals, natural communities, and 
other natural features, and to promote the knowledge, 
enjoyment and stewardship of Michigan's native species and 
ecosystems for present and future generations.
Projects funded during 2000 included restoration of a 
lakeplain prairie on school property, raptor migration 
studies, ultrasonic identification of flying bats, surveys 
for endangered and threatened grassland bird species and the 
use of Geographic Information Systems to predict 
distributions of rare freshwater mussels.
All proposals must focus on nongame species and their 
habitats. Projects must be directed toward public use and 
public benefit. Proposals are reviewed by DNR biologists, 
technical experts and advisors to the Nongame Wildlife 
Program. Those proposals that include matching funds and 
those directed toward threatened and endangered species 
receive higher priority.
Application information is available by contacting: Natural 
Heritage Grants, DNR Wildlife Division, Box 30180, Lansing, 
MI 48909-7944, or on the DNR Web site at 
www.dnr.state.mi.us.
