The Huron Mountain Wildlife Foundation invites proposals for
field-based research, in all areas of natural science, focused on the
landscape and ecosystems of the Lake Superior basin, particularly the
Huron Mountains of northern MI. The Foundation offers small grants and
provides housing and facilities free of charge at the Ives Lake Field
Station near Big Bay, MI.

HMWF provides research access to a large (ca 10,000 ha), ecologically
diverse, private natural area in the Huron Mountains of northern Marquette
Co, MI. The area includes extensive old-growth forests, diverse aquatic
systems, and a variety of other habitats.

The Foundation offers SMALL GRANTS, with particular priority given to:
'seed' projects that might lead to successful proposals to
major funding agencies; long-term studies; projects that make particular
use of the ‘reference ecosystem’ values of the study area. HMWF also
supports taxonomic documentation and is particularly interested in projects
addressing poorly studied groups (see website, below, for
current biodiversity inventory).

The Foundation’s website, at www.hmwf.org, provides information about past
and present research projects. Go to the ‘for researchers’ tab for
guidelines for research proposals.

Proposals for the 2016 field season should be submitted by 1 Feb, 2016;
this deadline is strict if funding is requested.
