Outdoor Wildlife Learning Sites Information & Application

What is an OWLS?

OWLS is an acronym for Outdoor Wildlife Learning Sites. It is a Program sponsored by the Chickadee Checkoff of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism. An OWLS is an outdoor environmental/wildlife laboratory, at or near a school, consisting of one or more native habitat features. It is designed to attract native wildlife and to facilitate multi-discipline learning opportunities for students. The program involves several agencies and organizations interested in conservation education. An OWLS grant provides $2,000 for developing initial features.
