Due to the success of the Winter Wings Festival, the Klamath Basin Audubon Society is able to offer grants to individuals and organizations that further education and conservation efforts in the Klamath Basin. Each year we offer grants of up to $400 to elementary teachers to assist them in environmental and/or wildlife education with their students. Each year 15-20 teachers are able to provide additional materials, equipment, or field trips to their students to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of our local environment.
A second grant program with awards of up to $2500 is offered to local organizations to fund projects that further KBAS’s mission. Recent awards have been made to the Klamath Lake Land Trust for construction and placement of nest boxes on their property, to Badger Run Wildlife Rehab. for improvements to their treatment facilities, to Klamath Bird Observatory for equipment to monitor songbird migrations, and to Bird Ally X for equipment at the Duck Hospital to treat birds infected with avian botulism from the Klamath Refuges.
