JUNEAU — Friday is the deadline for applications for the Dodge County Conservation Aids Grant Program in the UW-Extension Dodge County office, 127 E. Oak St., Juneau.

To be eligible, projects must improve fish and wildlife habitat in Dodge County. 

This Fish and Wildlife Management Grant Program was created to assist counties in the improvement of the fish and wildlife resources. The fund was established by the state Legislature in 1965 as an alternative to bounty payments on coyotes, foxes and bobcats. Every year since the bounty program was canceled, a state allocation equal to the average annual bounty payment has been earmarked as matching money for a growing list of county-sponsored fish and wildlife habitat projects.
