Make a Gift

The Kansas Biological Survey is a nexus for natural sciences research, conservation, and education for university students and the public. Scientists, along with undergraduate and graduate students, conduct research that affects our health, our state and our world. This research covers a broad spectrum and includes subjects as endangered species; climate change; water, air and soil quality; land conservation and plant communities; and the impact of various chemicals on the environment. The KU Field Station, managed by the Survey, protects wildlife habitat, preserves remnants of native prairie and old-growth forest, and serves as a natural, living laboratory.

Private contributions from individuals and organizations provide key support for Survey research and the education associated with it. The Survey invites you to join our efforts by making a contribution.
