MORGANTOWN, WV (AP) — West Virginia landowners who want to apply for grants to improve wildlife habitat have until June 14 to contact the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The agency is currently considering projects for Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program, funded by the federal farm bill. They'll be ranked and considered for funding in July.

West Virginia State Conservationist Greg Kist says the program funds activities that increase food, shelter and nesting habitats for various species.

Landowners can create habitat by cutting back woodland borders, fencing sensitive areas, restoring streams and planting warm season grasses, among other things.

Species targeted for help include the cottontail rabbit, grouse, mussels, trout and various songbirds, including the Golden Winged Warbler in West Virginia.
