    Birding Scholarship Trip Opportunity

  
 
    
   
   The Tim Schantz Memorial Foundation will send a college age scholarship recipient to the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival in Homer, Alaska May 10-13, 2007 to help in the studentís study of migrating shorebirds.  The Kachemak Bay Area, a magnificent setting, is renowned for the diversity and numbers of shorebird species that pass through each spring.

  
 
  
  
 
  Tim Schantz, recognized for his dedication and expertise in field bird identification died suddenly of a heart ailment in 2001 at the age of 36 while guiding an birding tour to Gambell, Alaska.  The Tim Schantz Foundation has been established to insure that Timís passion for birds live on in other young aspiring students and has sent a student to the festival the past 5 years.  The scholarship trip will include the following:
   
  ®      Roundtrip airfare to Anchorage, Alaska
  ®      Transportation from Anchorage to Homer, Alaska
  ®      Four nights lodging for the festival
  ®      A copy of the ABA Alaska finding guide
   
  Part of this experience will involve being on the program for the shorebird festival and doing an original ornithological presentation as well as serving as an interpretive guide for the public.  For more information on the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival go to homeralaska.org/shorebird.
