The RESTORE Act Funds Bucket 2: Comprehensive Plan
Habitat Restoration and Enhancement
Work identified as high priority in the (THSF) Hydrologic Restoration Plan developed by NWFWMD and FFS as described in the planning component, will be implemented as a component of this project. The implementation will consist of installing low water crossings, ditch blocks, constructing bridges, installing/replacing culverts and surface stabilization of 65 miles of roads. Funding and implementation of the activities outlined would directly impact, and support restoration of 202,436 acres of forest (includes Tate's Hell State Forest property/ownership). Approximately 2,100 acres of upland pine habitat (primarily longleaf) would be site prepped and planted on THSF in an effort to restore native habitat.
