Wildlife Trust Board Gets Several Proposals

Trust has received 59 applications seeking about 4-point-7 (m)
million dollars in project funding in the current application
Applications came in from 35 organizations in 19 of the state's
23 counties.
Delaine Roberts of Etna is chairman of the trust board. He says
the applications appear generally to be of high quality. The board
has about 4 (m) million dollars in funding available this year.

to address sagebrush habitats. A number of the other projects are

review of the applications. The board will make its final funding
decisions in June.
