Raritan Headwaters Association (RHA) is announcing a new grant program called Woods & Waterways, which is a cooperative grant opportunity to help restore riparian forest buffers along the North Branch Raritan River, the South Branch Raritan River and any tributaries that flow into both rivers.

Through the Woods & Waterways grant program, RHA aims to build partnerships to plant 10,000 native trees and shrubs within riparian buffers on publicly accessible land in the Upper Raritan Watershed over the next few years.

RHA is seeking municipal and non-profit partners to help improve riparian buffer habitats, which would help stabilize streambanks, mitigate flooding, lower water temperatures, create habitat for wildlife, reduce pollution from stormwater runoff, and improve water quality.

Join us for a live zoom webinar to provide further information about Woods & Waterways, including information about eligibility for the program, how to apply, and what to expect from the partnership. The webinar will also be recorded and posted on RHA’s website.
