This fund provides grants for projects that encourage the study, appreciation, and preservation of both birds and their habitats. Grants are accepted to perform research, conduct educational initiatives, and encourage conservation of critical habitats.
Examples of recent research grants are the study of Eastern Screech-Owl habitat, Flammulated Owl migration, the Black Swift life cycle, and the effect of grazing practices on bird breeding sites.
Examples of educational grants are those to promote youth to begin bird observation by scholarships to birding camp or by purchasing binoculars or 2-way radios for such camps.
Conservation grants have been given recently for restoration work at Last Chance on the eastern plains and at Dodd Reservoir near Boulder.
