Bird City Initiative

Bird City Wisconsin is an initiative to encourage conservation of birds and habitat preservation and restoration. The program's goal is to encourage communities in Wisconsin to implement sound bird conservation practices by offering public recognition to those that succeed in (a) enhancing the environment for birds and (b) educate the public about the interactions between birds and people and about the contributions birds make to a healthy community. The City of Fort Atkinson was designated as a Bird City of Wisconsin in March 2016.
For more information on how the Fort Atkinson community is working to implement bird conservation practices and educate the public about bird/people interactions, visit the City of Fort Atkinson’s Bird City page.
