Alma Goes To The Birds!  May, 2017

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 and the City of Alma, Wisconsin invite you to join our celebration of the importance of stopover sites and their habitats for migratory birds. Plan your springtime travel around Great River Birding Month and visit Alma, Wisconsin. We're celebrating the entire month of May, our shops are each sponsoring a migratory bird throughout the month. On Saturday, May 13th, enjoy the Great River Birding Festival as Alma, Wisconsin celebrates International Migratory Bird Day. Enjoy live music on Main Street and a screening of Winged Migration at the Big River Theater.    Click Here for more event information.
