The Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory is pleased to announce that it has received a $10,000 grant from the Bird Protection Fund of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin in support of our newly launched Neighborhood Habitat Improvement Project.
The Bird Protection Fund—a collaboration of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Bird Conservation Partnership and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources—has raised and distributed $1,014,566 for bird conservation since it was created in 2009
An organization must be invited to apply for this grant and fulfill the following priorities:
- Projects that directly address high priority conservation needs for Wisconsin’s birds.
- Projects that align with state, regional, and national bird conservation plans and strategies.
- Projects that leverage resources and partnerships.
We are deeply grateful for NRF’s confidence in the quality of our project and the opportunities it presents to collaborate with them for the protection of our birds. Learn more about the Neighborhood Habitat Improvement Project HERE.
