BIRD'S THE WORD!

When birds migrate between nesting and wintering sites, they don’t just stop anywhere; they rely on a handful of resource-rich and strategically located sites where they increase their body weight as they acquire the energy-rich fat stores needed to fly thousands of miles across continents and oceans. These places are known as stopover sites.  Alma, Wisconsin is well known as a stopover site, where birds stop while traveling along The Mississippi Flyway.

Environment for the Americas, Wings Over Alma Nature & Art Center, Alma Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Alma, Wisconsin invite you to join our celebration and learn how to protect birds every day of the year through actions, stories & art.  Join the celebration!

Plan your springtime travel around Alma, Wiscconsin's celebration of World Migratory Bird Day on May 4th.

As birds journey between breeding and non-breeding sites, Alma, Wisconsin is celebrating the importance of the places and habitats where they stop to rest and refuel.  Many fly over 2,500 miles between Central & South America, where they winter, to the United States & Canada, where they will nest and raise young. Let's help them along the way!
