Mid-Coast Audubon is offering support to schools and libraries to foster natural history learning and exploration by providing equipment and resources to establish a bird feeding station. Schools and libraries in the Midcoast area, including Knox, Lincoln, and Waldo counties, can apply online at midcoast.maineaudubon.org/projects/feeder-stations-for-schools-libraries/. The deadline for applications is June 30.

The grant for a feeding station includes a pole, feeders, baffle, storage can, starter supplies, educational resources, and compact binoculars. A Mid-Coast Audubon volunteer will come to your facility to help with setup and advice to launch or enhance your program.

Bird enthusiasts can help Mid-Coast Audubon supply more schools and libraries with feeding stations by making a donation to their feeder station program at P.O. Box 458, Damariscotta, ME 04543. All donations will be used to help teach kids about birds.
