Apply For Our Matching Grant Program

It's Super Easy!

Thanks to a recent partnership grant from We Energies Foundation, Antonia Foundation, Natural Resources Foundation of WI and Ecolab Foundation, we are able to again offer groups and organizations the opportunity to apply for a matching grant to host one of our educational programs.

Applicants can choose among different programs offered and must agree to match  50% of the program's fees. For example, a three-bird program may include a hawk, owl or falcon for $300. Qualified applicants chosen for a matching grant would pay only $150. We also offer programs that includes our Golden Eagle, see application for details. 

Programs not only feature live birds of prey, but teach audiences about their behaviors, habitats and simple ways to help with conservation efforts. Applicants must be a non-profit or not-for profit organization such as a school, club, library, or center, with the matching grant program specifically aimed at helping schools, student/children's groups, and seniors. This annual program is limited to funds available. To apply complete the application  click here
