Arkansas Audubon Society Trust Report Fall 2016

In 1972 the Arkansas Audubon Society Trust was created for “charitable, scientific, public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or for the preservation and conservation of the wildlife, plant life, forests, wetlands, and all natural resources, within the United States or any of its possessions.” Help us better fulfill the purpose of the Trust by growing the Endowment-Memorial Fund another $50k by the
50th anniversary in 2022. That will bring this fund to $200,000. Investment income from the fund pays for grants like the ones below. Tax-deductible contributions can be sent to: Barry Haas, Treasurer, P.O. Box 242088, Little Rock, AR 72223.

At the fall 2016 meeting the Trustees gave 7 awards totaling $4,224.84 to the following researchers:
