Indiana Audubon recently awarded $6,000 in environmental grants, as part of its Mumford & Keller Grants and Scholarship Program. The grants were awarded to support programs, workshops, training, related to Indiana Audubon’s mission of research, education, and conservation for natural resources, particularly birds.
Those organizations and individuals receiving funding in 2022 include: Humane Indiana Wildlife, Eagle Creek Ornithology Center, The Institute for Bird Populations, Richmond Parks and Recreation, Dunes-Calumet Audubon Society, and the Bethany Land Institute USA.
“Every year we are thrilled to see our partners and fellow environmental organizations stepping up to improve Indiana for both the birds and the people who enjoy them.” Said Brad Bumgardner, Executive Director for Indiana Audubon.
The Mumford & Keller Grant/Scholarship Program is named after Charles Keller and Russell Mumford. Both were instrumental in the birding community and authored landmark birding books for the state of Indiana. Both Charles and Russell have passed, but their name lives on with the grants and scholarship program.
