2014 Jeff Maurer Chautauqua Research Grant
Each year a portion of the proceeds from the Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua fund a small grant that supports continuing research and education connections. The grant is named in honor of Jeff Maurer, a dedicated field biologist, educator, and long-time Chautauqua presenter. This year we hope to fund up to $4,500.00 for Mono Basin/Eastern Sierra research. Check the RFP for more information.
