Making our communities healthy for birds... and people
Bird City Wisconsin may be a small organization, but it has an out-sized impact. Every year, our communities take more than 1,200 conservation and education actions that make Wisconsin a better place to live -- for us and for birds.
We rely on application and annual renewal fees and much-appreciated occasional grants to cover the salary of our part-time director, the costs of our website, and postage and other administrative costs, not to mention the expenses of our successful small-grants program.
We want to expand our impact around the state, but we need your help to do so. Please donate. Your support will help us recognize more Wisconsin communities, educate more residents, protect more habitat, and remove threats to birds.
