Bird City Conservation Project
Communities have been recognized, as Bird City conservation project enters its second year. The bird city project is a modeled after the successful “Tree City USA” program. Communities, like Brown County, submitted an application demonstrating our conservation, education, and on-going efforts to preserve habitat in a way that is beneficial to birds.

Brown County met several of 22 criteria across five categories, including habitat creation and protection, community forest management, limiting hazards, public education, and recognizing International Migratory Bird Day.

For more information about the program you can view the website by clicking the below Bird City Wisconsin logo. Bird City Wisconsin stresses the economic incentive for communities to practice conservation. The EPA estimates that more than half of all U.S. adults hunt, fish, bird watch or photograph wildlife, spending a total of $59.5 billion annually, and that the value derived from the observation and photography of wetland-dependent birds alone is at least $10 billion a year!
