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.
