High Country Audubon Society is pleased to announce the availability of a grant of up to $500 to be used to assist with the research of birds in the High Country of North Carolina. The Sue Wells Research Grant Program is in support of HCAS’s mission statement, which is to encourage beginning birders and experts alike in our five-county area to engage in conservation, education and research for the birds of western North Carolina.

Additionally the student who receives the grant will be expected to present his/her findings at a High Country Audubon Society meeting within one year of the completion of the research.
