A Georgia state agency says it has money available to help fund projects that give people a closer view of the state's wildlife.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is taking applications for its Wildlife Viewing Grants Program through Jan. 15. The grants award up to $3,000 per project.
The agency awarded money to six projects last year. They included a viewing scope and platform at a nature center on Jekyll Island and a tower that provides shelter for federally protected migratory birds at Talking Rock Nature Preserve in Pickens County.
