CHICKADEE CHECKOFF SMALL GRANTS APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 15

May 29, 2014

For 34 years wildlife and wildlife enthusiasts have benefited from this unique program

PRATT — The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism has extended the deadline for accepting proposals for the Chickadee Checkoff Small Grants Program through June 15, 2014. Grant recipients carry out projects focused on wildlife diversity and native nongame wildlife species while addressing the issues and strategies within the Kansas Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Plan “A Future for Kansas Wildlife.”

By making small grants available, the department is able to utilize the talents and expertise of people outside of the department. The diverse projects completed as a result of this program have led to numerous publications in scientific journals, educational products, and new information on native nongame wildlife species and their habitats.

Interested parties have until June 15 to turn in a completed grant proposal. For program information on this program, including eligibility requirements and to view a list of priority projects for 2014, download the grant guidance document, or visit ksoutdoors.com and click “Services / Wildlife Diversity / Chickadee Checkoff.”
