Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum has received a gift to support studies of natural history, promote the preservation and biodiversity, and /or encourage studies of rare and endangered species.  This gift will allow us to offer grant support ($2500-5000) for studies related to a rare species or habitat found on our four properties (Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Nichols Arboretum, Mud Lake Bog, and Horner-McLaughlin Woods).  These funds would be particularly appropriate for students working on an honor’s thesis, master’s thesis or practicum, or PhD.

We have proposed a list of topics that would be high priority for us.  If you are interested in pursuing a study related to one of these topics, please see me or our Natural Areas Manager, Jeff Plakke (jplakke@umich.edu).  For information on our properties, see http://www.lsa.umich.edu/mbg/see/gis/.

Deadline: March 10th or as available until funds are exhausted.
