HARRISBURG, Pa. (April 4) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) today announced an invitation for project applications to the State Wildlife Grant Program. These projects will help address conservation needs for a high-priority conservation project for the timber rattlesnake, a species in the State Wildlife Action Plan.

The timber rattlesnake is considered a “candidate” species in Pennsylvania and this project will build upon the long-term monitoring program initiated in earlier studies. Click here to view the action plan for the timber rattlesnake.
