'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Funding will be available to groups with small recreational, natural or cultural projects in six counties.

Through a partnership between the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor, grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 are available to nonprofit organizations, municipalities and friend groups of state parks and forestry districts along the Lincoln Highway in Westmoreland, Somerset, Bedford, Fulton, Franklin and Adams counties, according to the organization.

Executive Director Olga Herbert said the organization has $23,250 to give away in grants, which is left over from the same grant program offered last year.

Last fall, $18,750 was handed out, including $1,000 to the Loyalhanna Watershed Association to restore a swinging bridge in Ligonier and $5,000 to the Ligonier Valley Historical Society to cap the Laurel Hill Iron Furnace to prevent the growth of degenerative moss in the furnace.

Applications, due by 4 p.m. Feb. 28, are available by contacting the corridor at office@LHHC.org or 724-879-4241. All grant requests require a cash match.
