The Roots Program is the result of a $26 million block grant award to Point Blue from the California Wildlife Conservation Board. Over the next four years, the Roots Program will build wildlife-friendly resilience and equity in California’s working landscapes through restoration and habitat improvement projects on farms and ranches. Point Blue will prioritize outreach and funds to projects that are otherwise hard to reach through state funding mechanisms, with a focus on reaching disadvantaged communities. The funds will provide resources to support core work in our STRAW (Students and Teachers Restoring A Watershed) and Working Lands programs while growing our capacity for equity building and social science research.

We’ll continue to update our website with more information about this exciting program in the future.

Point Blue is currently accepting applications for restoration projects that qualify under the terms of the grant agreement. Please read the full Request for Proposals here (pdf download).
