CIGLR is partnering with the NOAA Restoration Center (RC) to evaluate a habitat restoration project within the St. Marys River Area of Concern. We are soliciting proposals from CIGLR Regional Consortium members to identify a team with the expertise and capacity to evaluate the longer-term efficacy of the Little Rapids restoration project through scientifically rigorous post-restoration monitoring and effectiveness assessment. Up to $300,000 is available to CIGLR Regional Consortium members for an 18-month project. Proposals are due by COB Monday, May 27th, 2024.

More information, including background information and proposal requirements, are described in the Little Rapids RFP document. Please reach out to CIGLR Project Manager Patrick Kelly at and NOAA Technical Monitor Terry Heatlie at with any questions.

We hope that you will consider submitting a proposal!
