You're Invited! Bringing Birds Back Conference

By Karen Etter Hale
WI Bird Conservation Partnership Chair

YOU are invited to join us in our quest to bring birds back. The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Partnership, WSO, and Bird City Wisconsin are hosting a conference March 24-25 to engage all those concerned with birds to help reverse bird declines at individual and community levels.

Bringing Birds Back will be held at the Culver Family Welcome Center on the UW-Oshkosh campus. On Friday, keynote speaker Mike Parr, president of the American Bird Conservancy, will offer an overview of the “State of the Birds” in the Western Hemisphere. This will set the stage for what we as individuals, communities, and organizations can do to help birds.

Topics include:

  • Important Bird Areas
  • Bird Cities
  • Home landscaping with native plants
  • Reducing bird-window collisions
  • Including previously excluded communities
  • And much, much more!

Together we can – and will – bring birds back, one residence, one community, one Important Bird Area at a time. Please join us! And register soon, as space is limited.
