Discover Wisconsin TV Show

The May 19, 2021, episode of long-running TV program Discover Wisconsin features the City of Janesville and its outdoor attractions. Janesville has been a Bird City since 2013.

Quentin Yoerger, a member of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology Board of Directors, and Tom Klubertanz, a WSO member and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater professor, introduce viewers to birding opportunities in the city and explain how important it is to protect vital bird habitat.

Located on the Rock River, Janesville boasts over 2,600 acres of parkland, making it an important stopover site for migratory birds. Two of the city's parks -- the Robert O. Cook Memorial Arboretum and Rockport Park -- are favorites of local birders.
