We are pleased to announce the Mary Kiesau Community Fellowship Fund. This fund supports the independent projects of artists, photographers, naturalists, and naturalist educators working to further their own creativity, professional development, and the community’s connection to the land, art, and each other. The application period is open from January 31 to March 31, 2021.

In 2021, we will offer 2 awards, each in the amount of $1,000, in 2021.

Artists, photographers, naturalists, and naturalist educators are invited to apply for the Fellowship. These funds are designed to support your “field” work and ultimately the creation of artistic works and knowledge that can be shared with your community.

Mary Kiesau was a woman of extraordinary energy and drive who passed away in April, 2020. This fellowship will fund projects that honor Mary’s legacy and align with her values and artistic passions:
Living in harmony and balance with the earth and its finite resources.
Being observant, interested in, and connected with the natural world in order to gain a deep appreciation for the place one calls home.
Helping to create a strong, resilient, and enlightened community that is composed of the Methow flora, fauna, and people.

More information about Mary’s work and legacy can be found at her website: mountainkindnaturalist.com
