PRATT — The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism is accepting proposals for the Chickadee Checkoff Small Grants Program through April 15, 2015. 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.”
The Chickadee Checkoff Program funds a variety of educational, research-based, and habitat enhancement projects, as well as the monitoring of nongame wildlife and habitats. 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.
Completed proposals must be received at the KDWPT Pratt Operations Office by April 15.
