Items of special interest
NHAS just awarded our first land conservation and restoration grant of $5,000 to the Eno River Association (ERA). The ERA will use these funds towards their goal of creating more diverse habitats at the Confluence Natural Area using prescribed burns. ERA’s goal will be to convert agricultural fields at the Confluence Natural Area into a Piedmont prairie and diversify the structure of the forested areas on the preserve. This will benefit birds and other wildlife. Thank you to all the other wonderful organizations that submitted proposals. We will have another conservation grant solicitation later in 2024. See more information on the Confluence Natural Area here. For details on NHAS grant funding, go here.
