Overview:

The Lois Webster Fund (LWF) of the Audubon Society of Greater Denver (ASGD) was  established in 1995 specifically to support Colorado non-game wildlife research and education projects that lead  to the conservation of these species. 

It  should be noted that the LWF will consider projects focused on all non-game wildlife in Colorado and is by no  means limited just to Colorado birds or to particular habitats. 

The LWF intends to fund at least one project per year and will consider multiple year projects but funding will only be awarded on an annual basis.
