Margaret Williams Research Grant Proposals due February 1st

Proposals for the Margaret Williams Research Grants are due February 1st of each year.  Please visit the Grants page for more information.

These grants are designed to facilitate basic botanical research and increase our understanding of Nevada's native and naturalized flora. The research should cover some aspect of our flora from single species to whole communities or ecosystems. Research can include, but is not limited to, disciplines such as conservation, landscape analysis, ecology, biogeography, or taxonomy.
