Title II projects within USFS
The resource advisory committee of the Sumter and Francis Marion National Forests will consider an estimated $150 thousand in funding next month for Title II projects that benefit forest lands in Oconee, Union, Newberry, and Berkeley counties. The committee meets September 6 in Columbia, and the meeting is open to the public. Though the resource advisory committee will have oversight on an estimated $150 thousand to spend on projects, the exact locations and amounts will not be known until after September 30. The committee works closely with the Forest Service and county officials to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, watersheds and other resources; maintain road trails, and other infrastructure; or control noxious weeds.
