Mary Coolidge, assistant conservation director of the Audubon Society of Portland, will use her award for Bird Safe Portland, an effort to reduce the number of bird strikes on windows.

"We've gained a lot of momentum in our efforts to start a Lights Out Portland program, and this funding will really help us continue."
