Apply by Feb. 29 for upland
game bird habitat funds

OLYMPIA-- Those interested in undertaking an upland game bird habitat enhancement project in central Washington can apply for funding through Feb. 29 from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).

The funding comes from the Dave Wallace Account for Upland Game Bird Habitat Enhancement, dedicated to upland game bird habitat projects on public and private property in Okanogan, Chelan, Douglas, Kittitas, Grant and Adams counties. The account was established in memory of a long-time upland game bird hunter and advocate from Ephrata.

Groups, agencies or individuals are eligible for funding. Applicants may obtain a Wallace Grant Application Packet at WDFWs Ephrata regional office, 1550 Alder St., Ephrata, Wash., 98823-9699, or by calling (509) 754-4624, or at WDFWs Wenatchee district office, 3860 Chelan Highway N., Wenatchee, Wash., 98801-9607, or by calling (509) 662-0452. Completed grant applications will be accepted at those offices through Feb. 29.

Only projects that provide habitat benefits to upland game birds (chukar and gray partridge, pheasant and quail) will be considered for funding. Project requests should not exceed $3,000 and should be for habitat development and enhancement. Requests for winter bird feed or game bird rearing for release do not qualify for funding.

Eight to 10 projects are funded each year. Projects funded in the past include spring development, fencing habitat areas, vegetation planting and construction of upland game bird feeders.
