The cycle of life applies to money, too. The Contra Costa County Fish and Wildlife Committee announced last Thursday it's accepting applications for grants to be used to enhance the county's fish and wildlife resources. Funds for the grants come directly from fines for violations of Fish and Game code. This means that the same $200 taken from a trout poacher can be used to help save local trout. Refreshing, isn't it? Last year, a total of $44,160 was awarded to 11 projects, with awards ranging from $490 to $10,000. Applications are due Dec. 28.
