Woodland Restoring deadline Nov. 17

COLUMBUS — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces an opportunity to help restore oak-hickory woodlands in southeastern Ohio.

To restore oak-hickory woodlands, NRCS and its conservation partners created the ‘Collaborative Oak Management’ project in southeastern Ohio. The project area includes the Wayne National Forest and Ohio State Forests, as well as privately held forest land. Approximately 73 percent of the land within the Wayne National Forest is privately owned.

Woodland owners in Adams, Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Vinton and Washington Counties may apply for the EQIP Oak Management program.

Applications for EQIP submitted by entities, such as agricultural producers applying as a corporation, must have a DUNS (Data Universal Numbering System) number and an active SAM (System for Award Management) registration status when applying. Applications cannot be processed without this information. Information on obtaining a DUNS number and registering with SAM is posted here.

Visit any local USDA Service Center if you are interested in applying for the EQIP Oak Management program. A list of county offices is available online.
