Tom Schantz Kayaking in Prince William Sound

Tom Schantz, twin brother of Tim, served as the guide and host for our recipients to the Kackemak Bay Shorebird Festival.  After his loss in 2014 the Foundation struggled to determine how to coordinate these trips without him.  We are pleased to announce that effective 2017 we entered into a partnership with the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies in Homer, Alaska and have resumed awarding trips.  Please click the Application link above or see the Application page for more information.cacs-logo

We are pleased to announce that Marcel Such of Colorado was our 2018 recipient.  Marcel attended the festival and delivered a presentation at the festival is titled “Climate Change and Birds”.  In addition to presenting a topic to the festival attendees, Marcel enjoyed the rest of the Shorebird Festival activities in Homer and was able to do some additional birding in Alaska.  For more information on Marcel and our other past recipients, please visit our Recipients page.
