MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invites the public to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day on May 14 with a weekend-long celebration at Kohler-Andrae State Park.
“Kohler-Andrae State Park’s World Migratory Bird Day events will offer a unique and fun opportunity for people of all ages to learn about and experience the magnificence of Wisconsin’s migratory birds and how we can all work to help protect them,” said Phyllis McKenzie, DNR Natural Resources Educator.
World Migratory Bird Day is a global bird conservation education campaign highlighting the importance of conserving migratory birds and protecting their habitats. Almost 700 events and programs are hosted around the world each year to help educate the public about migratory birds and ways to help them.
Wisconsin provides critical nesting and stopover habitat for a variety of migratory birds, some of which are listed as rare or endangered species globally, nationally or in the state.
The World Migratory Bird Day weekend event schedule at Kohler-Andrae includes various activities ranging from pop-up bird walks, scavenger hunts, a live birds of prey presentation, crafting workshops and more.
All participants are welcome. A 2022 Wisconsin State Parks and Forests vehicle admission sticker or day pass is required to enter the park.
Participants interested in attending the Big Sit activity with Moraine Shores Audubon on Saturday, May 14, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the roof of Sanderling Nature Center are encouraged to bring their own binoculars and lawn chairs.
The full schedule of World Migratory Bird Day weekend activities is available at the DNR Get Outdoors calendar here.
