From the Trust

Arkansas Audubon Society Trust Report Fall 2020


The Trust had a Zoom conference on October 17. Dr. Ragupathy Kannan joined us from his quarantine/sabbatical in Sri Lanka; it was early morning for him, late evening for the rest of us. He shared his beautiful balcony view of tropical trees leading down to the Indian Ocean. He makes daily eBird checklists from this perch. 

For the fall 2020 session the Trustees granted nine awards totaling $5,200.

         Katherine Ceynar (M.S., U. North Texas) tracked down $700 to study the spatial ecology of female Painted Buntings.

         Gabrielle Hargrove (M.S., UA-Monticello) marshaled $300 to listen for marshbirds.

         Tori Hebert (M.S., UCA) dip-netted $300 to look at land use effects on aquatic insects.

         Ryan Kotoucek, our first Eagle Scout applicant, merited $200 to build bird boxes.

         Lindsey Martin-Krikorian’s (Ph.D., ASU) project was given a healthy dose of $400 to examine novel aspects of snake immunology.

         Alix Matthews’ (Ph.D., ASU) mighty study of feather mites was granted $1,100.

         Ozark Society Foundation            received $1,000 to support printing of a new tree ID book.

         Garrett Rhyne (M.S., LSU) flew off with $1,000 to study Swainson’s Warbler migration.

         John Veon (M.S., UA-Fayetteville) gained $200 to examine Mallard body mass variation. 

My thanks to Dr. Than Boves, Lynn Christie, Susan Hardin, Dr. Kannan, and Samantha Scheiman for reviewing the proposals. Investment income from the Endowment-Memorial Fund pays for grants like these. Contributions can be sent to: Barry Haas, Treasurer, P.O. Box 242088, Little Rock, AR 72223.
