Stewardship applications open

The Sheboygan County Planning and Conservation Department has announced that applications for the Sheboygan County Stewardship Fund Grant have been released.

Applications can be obtained at the Planning and Conservation Department office, located in Room 335 at 508 New York Ave., Sheboygan, or by visiting and navigating to the Planning and Conservation Department page.

The 2015 application deadline is Friday, May 1 at 5 p.m. Applications must be mailed or hand delivered; faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted. Approximately $115,000 is available for funding in 2015.

Recommendations for individual project funding are made by the Sheboygan Country Recreational Facilities Management Advisory Committee, with final funding allocation decided by the Sheboygan County Board of Supervisors’ Planning, Resources, Agriculture, and Extension Committee.

Supervisor and chairman of the PRAE Committee Keith Abler said in a press release, “The County Stewardship program continues to be a popular and successful program fifteen years after over 70 percent of county voters approved it. Over 80 projects have been approved and nearly every entity in the county has seen a project positively affect their community.”

Projects must fit into one of three categories: project development, land acquisition, or discretionary (which are considered for applicability on a case-by-case basis). Stewardship Grant funds cannot exceed 50 percent of the total project or acquisition cost.

Interested non-profits or municipalities are encouraged to contact the department prior to applying.

Tree sale deadline approaching

The deadline to purchase trees and shrubs from the Sheboygan County Planning and Conservation Department is rapidly approaching.

The cutoff date for accepting orders is Friday, Feb. 27. Those still interested in obtaining trees can request an order form by calling the department at (920) 459-1370.

An order form, species descriptions and pictures can be found on the Sheboygan County website, Click on departments, then Planning and Conservation, then under programs click on tree and shrub.

The program, now entering its 17th year, has resulted in more than one million trees being planted throughout Sheboygan County and neighboring areas. More than 40 different species of bare-root trees and shrubs are available as well as potted evergreen stock. The fruit tree selection now includes apple, plum, pear, cherry and peach.

Also available are two specialty packets. One is the bird/butterfly packet that includes five species of shrubs and flowers that will amaze you in the amount of butterflies they attract. The other is Dave’s deer and turkey packet which contains 10 different species of trees that are good food and shelter for wildlife.

Also available again are wildlife food plot seeds. Seven mixes are geared toward deer. These include wildlife feast, perennial platinum, fall fusion, autumn feast, brassica blast, raging radish and trophy deer mineral. The game bird mix is offered to improve habitat for turkeys, pheasants and other upland game birds.

Additional items for sale include planting aids, tree protection tubes and weed mats.

This is a great time to take advantage of an opportunity to add landscape features or increase wildlife habitat on your property. The program encourages landowners to plant native trees and shrubs, however there are a few non-native species available for purchase.

If you need assistance with designing a habitat plan for your property, contact Eric at the Planning and Conservation Department at (920) 459- 1370.

Order pickup is scheduled for April 23, 24 and 25 in Sheboygan Falls.
