Crazy Grants : July 5th

BLM OR-WA: Honey Creek Diversions Passage and Screening $200,000
Improve passage ways for fish around irrigation diversions in the waterways. No mention of the fact that improved passageways could negatively affect irrigation. Next year might we see a grant to improve irrigation systems?
BLM OR-WA Population Monitoring and Effects of Grazing on Greene's Mariposa Lily on the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument $100,000
How do animals, insects, climate, and trends in plant communities affect the population of Greene's Mariposa Lily.
Redd Dewatering II $155,000
Develop and implement a program which makes all reasonable efforts to at least double natural production of anadromous fish in Central Valley rivers and streams. If people meddle to double the population, is it natural anymore?
Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership : Tracking and Monitoring $25,000
Tag and monitor whooping cranes.

Today's Total $480,000
