Urban Bird Funds Awarded

Urban Bird Treaty cities

The US Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced the ten cities that will be awarded up to $70,000 in a challenge grant for bird conservation projects. (That means the cities need to match the funds somehow.) In addition, cities previously selected for the program will receive an additional $10,000 grant.

This year’s cities range from the large (San Francisco; Washington, DC) to the small (Opelika, Ala. and Lewiston, Mont.).
