The Huron Mountain Wildlife Foundation invites *proposals for field-based
resear**ch** in all areas of natural science* focused on the landscape and
ecosystems of the Lake Superior basin, particularly the Huron Mountains of
Michigan Upper Peninsula.

The Field Station offers access to a 10,000 ha private natural area,
including extensive old-growth forests, diverse aquatic systems, and a
variety of other habitats. The Foundation offers *small grants* and
provides housing and facilities free of charge at the Ives Lake Field
Station near Big Bay, MI.

The Foundation is particularly interested in 'seed' projects that might
lead to successful proposals to major funding agencies; long-term studies;
and 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
facilities and past and present research projects. Guidelines for research
proposals may be found under the 'for researchers' tab.

Proposals for the 2017 field season should be submitted by 1 Feb, 2017.
This deadline is strict if funding is requested; later proposals not
requesting funding may be entertained depending on availability of
