2024 Community Technical Assistance

Following our Spring 2024 Wildlife Webinar Series, the Taking Action for Wildlife Team will assist three communities to develop and implement a project to benefit wildlife and habitats in their community.

Who: Communities with commissioners/volunteers that have attended (or watched the recording) of one or more webinars in the series will be given priority. Each community should have 3-5 representatives participating in the assistance and project. At least two participants should be from the conservation commission, but additional participants can be from other municipal boards, committees, or others from the community.

Your Project:  Any project based on your community's goals and objectives, that benefits wildlife and/or habitats in some way, is eligible. We welcome your creativity! Here are a few examples of potential community projects.

If your project is selected, you will be paired with 1-2 members of the Taking Action for Wildlife Team. We will work with you to help refine the goals and scope of your project, connect you with relevant tools and resources, provide support and feedback as you work to execute the project, and help manage the timeline of the project. Please only apply for assistance if your team is prepared to do the work of the project.

Deadline to Apply: Applications are due May 1, 2024. The application must be submitted using the online form (button below), but you can preview the application here.

Time-Frame: You will be notified of our decision by the end of May. We will work with your community from June-November 2024. We typically meet with communities as needed, but not more than once a month, during that period.
