2019 Roots for Rivers grants

The Nature Conservancy, Sustainable Jersey and The Watershed Institute are again offering “Roots for Rivers” reforestation grants, available now through Friday, December 13th, 2019 for spring 2020 tree planting projects.

The Roots for Rivers Reforestation mini grant program uses the Conservancy’s lessons learned and expertise, coupled with financial incentives, to inspire communities and help catalyze restoration efforts across New Jersey to restore our watersheds through planting native trees and shrubs in degraded floodplain areas and help us to achieve a goal of planting 100,000 trees throughout our state’s floodplains by 2020. To date, over 83,000 materials have been planted (and protected) throughout New Jersey’s floodplains.

For more information on how to apply and become involved in the program, please visit Sustainable Jersey and/or The Watershed Institute’s online grant portals.
