Show Me the Money!

The Leisure Services Department was recently notified that it is one of six 2018 recipients in the Georgia Wildlife Resources Wildlife Viewing Grants Program. 

Wildlife-viewing projects from Athens to Colquitt and Atlanta to Brunswick will receive grants to improve public opportunities to see and learn about animals, plants, and natural habitats considered conservation priorities in Georgia’s State Wildlife Action Plan.

Funded by the Georgia Nongame Wildlife Conservation Fund and the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation, the grants are aimed at helping develop and enhance viewing options that increase awareness of wildlife, with an emphasis on Wildlife Action Plan species and habitats. Georgia’s Wildlife Action Plan is a comprehensive strategy to conserve these creatures and places before they become rarer and costlier to conserve or restore.

The Leisure Services Department will use the $2,823 award for bat boxes and signage on the Oconee Rivers Greenway as part of larger bat-awareness project.
