    Tim Schantz Memorial Foundation


    Tim Schantz, well known birder and guide, died suddenly from coronary artery disease in 2001 at the age of 36 while guiding a trip to St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. Tim had a consuming passion for birds and spent his life studying them and sharing his love and knowledge with others.


    The Tim Schantz Memorial Foundation was established after Tim’s death to honor his passion by promoting interest in birds and birdlife. With these goals in mind, the foundation annually awards a scholarship trip to the Kachemak Bay Shorebird festival held each May in Homer, Alaska. The foundation has also donated Tim’s extensive collection of bird books to the Prince William Sound Science Center, which has established a memorial library in Tim’s name.
