Bird conservation meeting set for Chippewa Falls



Bird enthusiasts can join experts from around the state to learn more about how they can help birds on their property by attending the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative March 19-21 at the Avalon Hotel and Conference Center, 1009 West Park Ave., in Chippewa Falls.

“This conference is a great way private landowners and other citizens can get directly involved with conservation efforts and contribute to the strong legacy that exists in Wisconsin,” said Tom Hauge, wildlife bureau director for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

This year’s meeting, coordinated by the DNR and other partners, recognizes the significant role that private lands play in providing habitat for birds.

“Private landowners play a key role in achieving important conservation goals in Wisconsin,” said Ryan Brady, bird-monitoring coordinator for the Initiative. “This is a great forum for those wanting to see what opportunities exist for them to create habitats in their own backyard.”

The conference features presentations and field trips focused on forest, wetland and grassland habitats.

“Our goal is to come up with creative approaches that combine the habitat needs of birds with the goals of landowners,” said Yoyi Steele, DNR wildlife biologist and planner. “Landowners have the ability to make a huge impact on birds and other wildlife on their land. We’re here to help them restore and preserve those crucial habitats.”

The conference will wrap up with field trips Saturday morning, where guests will have the chance to see how the practices work from other landowners.
