Does your club have a great idea for a project that improves fish or wildlife habitat? HCTF’s Public Conservation Assistance Fund (PCAF) provides small grants for “on-the-ground” conservation projects such as monitoring wildlife, restoring spawning grounds, and building birdhouse and nest boxes. The key requirement is that you must provide at least half of the value of the project in volunteer labour, materials or other allowable donations: click here for further details. Hurry: next application deadline is May 17th.
