IOA Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012 Feather River Bulletin ai P roje receives gran Toyota and the National Audubon Society recently an- nounced that a new program that will bring Native American traditional ecological knowl- edge to bear on the restoration of northern California ranch land has been awarded a 2012 TogetherGreen Innovation Grant. The project will be con- ducted by the Plumas Audubon Society, in partnership with Maidu Summit Consortium and Feather River Land Trust. TogetherGreen, a conserva- tion initiative of the National Audubon Society and Toyota, provides financial support for projects that use innovative ap- proaches and technologies to engage new and diverse audi- ences in conservation and ad- dress pressing conservation problems. "Groups that won innovation grants this year have ingenuity and creativity on full display. And that's what it takes to tack- le the environmental challenges we face today," said Audubon President and CEO David arnold. "I'm proud to partner with these innovators in cre- ative approaches to achieve conservation results." The Plumas Audubon Soci- ety's project will be a multi- spoke effort to restore the 884- acre Heart K Ranch, recently conserved by the Feather River Land Trust The Heart K is one of the most species-rich areas in the northern Sierra: a land- scape of old growth conifer forests and oak woodlands, ri- parian woodlands and meadow habitats. Efforts will be made to reach out to the Native Ameri- can Mountain Maidu people in the region to apply Maidu tradi- tional land management knowl- edge to preserve and expand wildlife habitat. The project will begin with a three-day Traditional Ecologi- cal Knowledge symposium, fol- lowed by hand-thinning and pil- ing conifers on 5 acres (encour- aging oak regeneration and acorn production) and manag- ing riparian willow habitat (wil- lows are used as a traditional basketry material). Emphasis will be placed on incorporating Maidu youth and elders as land stewards in practicing their unique conservation knowledge on the ranch, as well as docu- healthier communities and big meriting restoration work. Since 2008, more than $5.5 million in TogetherGreen Inno- vation Grants funding has been awarded to more than 200 envi, ronmental projects nationwide. This year's grant projects will receive more than $1 million in funding and will involve more than 500 partner organizations nationwide. Many of the pro- jects focus on engaging audi- ences that have traditionally been under-served by the con- servation movement, from landowners to religious institu- tions to inner city students.
