Such projects shall enjoy broad-based support with objectives that may include, but are not limited to: Road, trail, and infrastructure maintenance or obliteration; Soil productivity improvement; Improvements in forest ecosystem health; Watershed restoration and maintenance; Restoration, maintenance and improvement of wildlife and fish habitat; Control of noxious and exotic weeds; and Re-establishment of native species.
