NEW DEADLINE TO APPLY!
We are offering full scholarships for community advocates and grassroots leaders working in low-income communities.
Thanks to support from Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Thomas Cade Funds, we will be offering a two-day citizen science/Celebrate Urban Birds workshop here at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
This workshop is for community advocates and grassroots leaders who want to learn about citizen science, engaging communities in conservation through the arts, birdwatching, and greening programs at the Cornell Lab. Leaders must be working in low-income communities and should be interested in leading community programming in citizen science and birds.
Full scholarships cover travel, lodging, meals, and cost of the workshop.

Both the mentors and their buddies went home happy at the end of the day! One of the teachers, Neysa Hardin commented on the success of the event:
A huge thank you to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for putting on a magnificent event!!
Do you hear what I hear? The holidays are coming, and with that, the presents, the hot cocoa, and children playing in the snow (and if you don’t have snow, children playing in general). Soon, the countdown for the New Year will begin, but before it starts, remember to apply for a mini-grant!
Sometimes the best gifts are helping others and spending time with them, so why not get some help to do just that? Celebrate Urban Birds is offering monetary grants ranging from $100 to $750 dollars to help anyone who wants to plan a fun activity to help people learn about birds and the environment. No previous experience is necessary, and we have the resources to help you out along the way! Furthermore, your event will be featured on our website to inspire others to learn about birds with their communities. All you have to do is think of an outdoor community event that incorporates the arts and focuses on learning about focal birds and greening or habitat creation. Besides this, a 10-minute observation and data collection of the focal bird species is required, which is simple and makes for an exciting activity to do at your event.
If you want some inspiration about what activities you can do, check out our Events page and our past mini-grant winners! More information about our mini-grants can be found here. If you have any questions, visit our FAQ or send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The last day to apply for a mini-grant is December 31, 2015, so make it your new year’s resolution to do an event that will leave a lasting impression on others!
