Public may submit project proposals for national forest

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — The public is being asked to submit project proposals that would benefit public lands and natural resources in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

The Daniel Boone Resource Advisory Committee expects $189,000 over the next two years to spend on projects in McCreary, Laurel, Jackson, Leslie and Rockcastle counties. The funding comes from a program to pay for projects that would improve or maintain existing infrastructure, enhance forest ecosystems and restore or enhance forest watershed quality.

The deadline for proposals is Sept. 18, and the committee will review the proposals in late October.

The form required to submit a proposal is available at http://cloudapps-usda-gov.force.com/FSSRS/allRAcs , then click on the Daniel Boone site; at the Stearns, London and Redbird ranger districts; or at the forest supervisor’s office.
