NWTF New York to invest $80,000 in state projects in 2012

Bookmark and Share

New York — The New York State Chapter of the NWTF committed $80,000 in New York this year to conservation, education, outreach and other projects.

These projects address priority concerns identified in the New York section of the North American Wild Turkey Management Plan.

The largest single commitment is $30,000, which will fund projects such as increasing access to hunting land, conservation seed and seed subsidy programs, and cooperative public land habitat improvement.

The chapter also dedicated $21,500 to its JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship), Women in the Outdoors and Wheelin' Sportsmen outreach programs, educational programs, scholarship programs, 4-H Shooting Sports, and the National Archery in the Schools Program.

Other projects will include promoting and protecting New York's hunting heritage through various partner organizations and supporting research of wild turkey harvest potential and American chestnuts.

Additional funding has been obtained to assist U.S. Forest Service staff members with habitat improvement work on Finger Lakes National Forest and on private lands, thanks to two cooperative agreements with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The NWTF will support many projects that are in partnership with government agencies, conservation groups and landowners. NWTF's New York chapters have raised and spent nearly $1.9 million on projects in the state.
