Just A Couple Quick Things…

Hi – just popping in with two short announcements.

First, for those of you living in or around Lincoln, Nebraska, I’ll be giving a presentation to the Wachiska Audubon Society on January 10, 2019. I’ll be sharing photos and stories from my square meter photography project. The meeting is at 7pm and free to the public. You can find more information on Wachiska’s website. It’d be great to see you there!

A milkweed bug peers at me around the edge of a leaf inside my square meter photography project last summer.

Second, we are currently taking applications for our Weaver Grant Program. We give up to five $1000 grants each year to graduate students working on projects related to Great Plains conservation. You can read more about the guidelines for application and our priority topics by clicking HERE. Applications are due February 8, 2019. We typically receive 12-20 applications per year, so your chances are pretty good compared to, say, a National Science Foundation grant program…

Please pass the information about both of these items to anyone who might be interested. Thanks, and Happy New Year!
