Grants Available to Individual Property Owners & HOAs
Are you interested in protecting the stream(s) on your property? A rare grant funded opportunity is offered by the Stroud Water Research Center
to provide and plant native trees along the stream and to care for them for three years at no cost. These trees will help to improve the
stream habitat and water quality, reduce flooding, and reduce bank erosion.
Small areas will be considered but they will prioritize projects where at least two acres of trees can be planted along the
stream area that presently has no trees and no livestock.
If interested, contact David Wise at email@example.com.

the year. See the attached flyer for additional information.
