    In fiscal year 2016, NFWF awarded $8 million in U.S. Forest Service funds to support 129 projects resulting in a total on-the-ground investment of $35.7 million to benefit forest ecosystems. The partnership supported grassland habitat restoration, native trout conservation, forested stream buffers, longleaf pine ecosystem enhancement, and NFWF’s first fuels management projects. These new projects are designed to protect natural resource investments from future catastrophic wildfires in California. The effort is an expansion on NFWF’s post-fire restoration programs that now include the Los Padres and Angeles National Forests.
