Description
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to expand and enhance longleaf pine ecosystem restoration and management across longleaf pine’s historical range, as well as the restoration and enhancement of bottomland hardwood forests within priority focal areas. The Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund is guided primarily by three strategic drivers: Supporting the implementation of NFWF’s Business Plan: Longleaf Forests and Rivers which outlines NFWF’s strategic priorities and goals to restore and enhance longleaf pine forest ecosystems. Four species are targeted within the business plan: red-cockaded woodpecker, gopher tortoise, Bachman’s sparrow, and northern bobwhite. These four species were selected as indicators of healthy longleaf ecosystems and represent the habitat needs of a broader suite of species dependent upon this system. Supporting longleaf pine ecosystem restoration and enhancement on public and private lands through collaborative, on-the-ground actions that contribute to the strategic restoration goals in the Range-Wide Conservation Plan for Longleaf Pine, developed by the America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative (ALRI). The three-year priorities and actions to advance these goals are outlined in ALRI’s strategic priorities and actions document. Supporting the implementation of bottomland hardwood restoration and enhancement strategies identified in NFWF’s Forestland Stewards partnership business plan for the benefit of wildlife species and freshwater systems, while promoting and supporting working forests. Funding for bottomland hardwood restoration and management is currently limited to focal areas within the coastal plain of North and South Carolina and piney woods region of east Texas and west Louisiana.
