The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries,
and Parks is committed to helping private landowners restore
longleaf pine forests. In 2013, the Foundation for Mississippi
Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks in partnership with the MDWFP
obtained a grant to provide cost-share to landowners in
Marion, Covington, Lamar, and Pearl River
Counties. The Foundation will reimburse landowners for up to
50% of the cost of longleaf pine reforestation.
Landowners must submit an application for entry into the
program. All applications will be competitively ranked based on
potential habitat benefits and will be selected for funding by the
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.
