I am the Assistant Director of San Juan Island Library. We are a small remote library with a vibrant community. Due to our unique environment our residents are very ecologically and environmentally aware and we have a huge tourism market.
I would like to create Birding Kits that the library lends out to our patrons.
The kit would consist of a backpack, maps, small set of binoculars, birding book, pencil/paper and information card.
To do this I would love a grant for the initial outlay.
UPDATE (March 2017): Our San Juan Island Library Bird Watching Kits have been awesome! Constantly in demand over summer, and recently used by school groups, the kits offer our patrons a great introduction to birdwatching. Some people even saw whales!
Thanks Awesome Foundation!
