In this newsletter, we list the Wisconsin communities that have successfully completed their 2021 renewals, and we describe what the cities of Fond du Lac and Sheboygan accomplished with the small grants they were awarded in 2020. They were two of six Bird Cities that received inaugural small grants from us last year. We also report on a proposal to allow Stevens Point residents to opt out of mowing their lawns in May, and we explain how to tell if your community's Bird City street signs need updating.

In this newsletter, we announce that Bird City Wisconsin will again award small grants in 2021, and we provide details about how and when to apply.

(Renewals are due by January 31, 2021.) Finally, we humbly request that you include Bird City Wisconsin in your charitable giving. We're a small organization, it's true, but we have an out-sized impact around the state. You can make it bigger. Please donate.

In this newsletter, we describe how inaugural small grants awarded by Bird City Wisconsin early in 2020 helped kickstart successful local projects undertaken by the City of Bayfield and the City of Madison.
