Non-profit organizations, state and local agencies, Native American tribes and others in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania are encouraged to apply for American Forests' grants to plant trees in environmentally significant, ecosystem restoration projects. The program, titled Chesapeake ReLeaf, also encourages habitat protection and restoration, conservation education, and the use of applied research and technology that promote the health and stewardship of forests in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Organizations applying for grants have to act quickly. The application deadline is February 15, 2001. Grants will be announced by March 1, 2001.
