PRATT, Kan. -( The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism is accepting proposals for the Chickadee Checkoff Small Grants Program through January 1, 2017.

Grant recipients are able to use the funding to carry out projects focused on wildlife diversity and native nongame wildlife species, while addressing the issues and strategies within the Kansas State Wildlife Action Plan.

Since 1980, Chickadee Checkoff has funded a wide variety of educational, research-based, and habitat projects, as well as the monitoring of nongame wildlife and their habitats.

Some of these projects include the creation of interactive exhibits at nature centers, and assessing the occupancy, abundance, and species richness of marsh birds at state and federal wetlands.

By making small grants available, the department is able to utilize the talents and expertise of people outside of the department.

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.

Small Grant proposals must be received by January 1, 2017.

For more information on this opportunity, including eligibility requirements and to view a list of priority projects for 2017, download the grant guidance document at by clicking “Wildlife & Nature,” “Wildlife Conservation,” then “Chickadee Checkoff Small Grants Program.”
