The Bald Eagle in Oklahoma

Nongame Wildlife Program

In 1981, the state legislatute passed the Nongame wildlife Act, allowing taxpayers entitled to a refund to assist nongame wildlife. By checking the appropriate line on the state income tax form, you can donate $2, $5 or any portion of your refund to suppon the Nongame Wildlife Program. Your donation will be deducted from the refund check and is tax deductible on next year's fedetal tax form if you itemize. Look for the Nongame Program's new logo (shown below) and remember to "Search for the scissortail" on your state tax form.

Besides re-establishing a nesting population of bald eagles in the state, the Nongame Program has used funds to census wintering eagle populations, enhance viewing opportunities and provide informational workshops. Donations also help other endangered species, prairie dogs, bluebirds and other bird species, and watchable wildlife around the state.

Even if you aren't receiving a state tax refund, you can still support the Nongame Program with an annual donation by mail. To support the program, or for more information,write to:
