SOUTH JORDAN — The Forest Service is inviting the public to propose projects designed to improve Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest lands and the economies of local counties.

The Forest Service is requesting project proposals from individuals, nonprofit organizations, and local governments. Proposals will be accepted through May 30. Project proposal forms are available at www.fs.usda.gov/uwcnf.

Project funding is made available through Title II funds under the reauthorized Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act. Title II projects fund work such as restoring watersheds, removing invasive weeds, enhancing recreation sites, and maintaining roads and trails.

The funds are made available by Cache, Juab, Tooele, Utah and Wasatch counties, which receive federal funds based on the percentage of land in federal ownership, timber receipt payments, and per capita income.

Additional information concerning Title II projects is available at the above website or by contacting the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest at 801-999-2113.
