This year the Celebrate Urban Birds Mini-Grants focused on promoting events that center Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in birdwatching and ornithology. We prioritized community-led applications that focused on sharing community knowledge and expertise and emphasized culture and the arts.
We received a wonderful response to our mini-grant invitation. It’s really exciting to see such creativity and so many varied organizations across all geographical areas working collaboratively to center equity, include the culture, birds, conservation, and the arts.
Mini-grant awards ranged from $250-$2500 and events will take place throughout the Americas in 2021.
Congratulations to the winners! Stay tuned to hear more about the events and activities.
