The Conservancy is soliciting proposals for its 2023 cycle of the Science and Research Grant Program.
The Conservancy's Science and Research Grant Program funds research that endeavors to illuminate, and where possible to resolve, uncertainties associated with management of the natural communities and species covered by the HCP. Research selected for funding will aid in achieving the biological goals and objectives of the Plan and inform management actions and/or contribute to the general understanding of a covered species. Such research will generally relate to the following:
- Efficacy of natural community enhancement/creation/restoration techniques
- Refining ecological requirements of covered species
- Response of covered species and natural communities to implementation of management actions within the Preserve System
- Strategies to conduct management or monitoring actions that support and/or lead to better management of natural communities or covered species, and/or on-site cultural resources.
Proposals must be submitted electronically as a PDF to Maureen Parkes at email@example.com by Thursday, July 27, 2023 at 5 p.m.
