Stroud Water Research Center/Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Buffer Collaborative

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project includes two separate awards of funds from DCNR. The combined efforts will install nearly 80 acres of forested buffers, including efforts to demonstrate multi-functional buffers where income potential from buffers for fruits, nuts, and salable horticultural materials are a motivator. These non-federal funds help fill niches for landowners who are either ineligible for or prefer non-federal options, such as some Plain sect farmers.
