Alma Earns New "Bird City Wisconsin" Designation 
The Alma Area Chamber of Commerce working with the City of Alma applied for designation earlier this year as a Bird City and we are the 102nd city in Wisconsin to receive this designation since the inception of Bird City Wisconsin in 2010. 

Bird City especially commended the City of Alma for its numerous areas of wildlife habitat and the truly impressive number of activities in our community that focus on birds, conservation & education. 

Actions like these benefit wildlife and help build a connection to nature that will show current and future decision makers just how important it is to protect the natural world.
ALMA is well known as a Wisconsin birding hot spot.
Spring brings the annual bird migration up the Mississippi Flyway.
Alma is celebrating Great River Birding Month throughout May.
 Great River Birding Festival, International Migratory Bird Day, is May 13th.
  
Bald Eagles, Tundra Swans, White Egrets, Great Blue Herons & 
American White Pelicans are abundant during spring and fall migration.
Rieck's Lake offers opportunities to view migrating birds and waterfowl.
The Mississippi River and backwaters provide lots of viewing opportunities.
