About this funder:



NANFA is an organization made up of home and professional aquarists, university and other professional researchers, conservationists, anglers and naturalists. As its name implies, the group is dedicated to the study and conservation of North America's native fishes.

This year, the North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) is again offering up to $1000 to sponsor a project or projects to educate the general public about native North American fishes and their environment. The Gerald C. Corcoran Education Grant will fund such educational projects as:

  • Producing and distributing educational materials
    • (books, brochures, posters, displays, video, Internet resources, etc.)
  • Stream surveys with public education as a primary goal
  • Public lectures
  • Nature center displays
  • School materials and displays
  • Teacher training workshops

The award was established in memory of past NANFA President Gerald C. Corcoran, who stressed public education regarding the continent's native fishes.
