Heritage Foundation Receives “Partners for Fish and Wildlife” Grant

We have recently received confirmation that our Partners for Fish and Wildlife (Partners) Program Agreement has been approved through the US Fish and Wildlife Service. This is the second significant grant awarded to us this summer. Funds from this grant will be used to install a new fence west of Lake Isabella Blvd. starting near the southern end and continuing north to the Bob Powers Preserve. Habitat enhancement is the primary purpose of this new fence. The new fence will restrict cattle from the more delicate wetlands on the eastern side of the preserve. The fence will also make a designated area near the Blvd. where we plan on have a pollinator garden that will be accessible from Lake Isabella Blvd. We envision this pollinator garden area to also include a meandering trail system that the community will be able to enjoy. A special thanks needs to be extended to our grant writer, Wendy Walwyn, whose very hard has paid extraordinary dividends.
