BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An advisory board for North Dakota’s Outdoor Heritage Fund has recommended seven grant applications totaling $3.5 million to state officials for approval.

The board forwarded proposals to the Industrial Commission this week that includes $2 million to continue funding for a statewide tree planting initiative.

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.

The state Industrial Commission will consider the requests on Dec. 16.
