Please share this email.
The Hartford Audubon Society is pleased to announce our annual Mini-Grant opportunity. The purpose of the mini-grants is to help fund and support initiatives within the State of Connecticut and especially within the Hartford County area, which directly benefit the bird life in our state. It is part of the Hartford Audubon Society’s mission to awaken a wider public interest in the enjoyment, preservation, and protection of birds and their habitat.
Projects may request a grant of up to $1,000. All projects must demonstrate some benefit to birds and/or birding in Connecticut. Past awards have included raptor enclosures, window strike material demonstrations, educational publications, and bird habitat plantings. Applications are due by 5 pm on February 15th, 2021. The brief application form and guidelines are provided on the HAS website at https://www.hartfordaudubon.org. Winners will be notified in March and receive checks shortly thereafter. Applications should be emailed to: <info...> mailto:<info...> with “Mini-grant Application” in the subject line.
Please share this email with any organization you think may have a bird-related project that needs funding. Groups could include land trusts (think trail signage!), conservation organizations, garden clubs (bird gardens, signage), schools (student projects), or even town projects.
