BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Industrial Commission has approved six grant applications totaling about $2.5 million for conservation projects across the state.

The Outdoor Heritage Fund grants approved this week include $2 million to continue funding for a statewide tree planting initiative. The smallest grant approved was for $26,300 to Delta Waterfowl of Bismarck. The group plans to construct 200 henhouses across the state to help boost the duck population.

The fund gets a percentage of oil and gas production taxes. The goal is to restore land affected by energy production and to develop such things as fish and wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation areas.
