Check the project type(s) that apply to your project:

Riparian Enhancement: this includes planting native vegetation and removal of invasives.
Fencing: to exclude access of livestock to watercourses and off channel watering systems
Fish Habitat Restoration: installation of habitat forming features such as woody debris.

Please describe the condition of the land adjacent to the creek (i.e. is the site wooded or are livestock present)

Please describe the purpose of your project and its potential benefits on the watershed.

How many linear feet of stream are available in your project? This is the distance along the streambank from the furthest upstream to the furthest downstream point.
How large is your set-back? This is the distance from the streambank inland.
Are either of the above distances flexible?
NO Not Sure

Have you seen any fish in your stream?
YES NO Not Sure

If yes, please list any species you believe use your stream.

The funding of a project will require that the landowner agree to not intentionally damage, significantly alter or destroy the project for 10 years. Is this acceptable to you?

If not, why?

The next step in getting your project funded will require a ‘site plan’ depicting plantings and/or fencing locations. An example site plan is available along with more examples here.

Are you able to supply a draft site plan if your application is accepted?
