The Knowles Nelson Stewardship Program could be in trouble

Do you support the Knowles Nelson Stewardship Program? If so you should let your state legislators know. This week, the Wisconsin state legislature will meet to decide whether or not the program should be continued, and if so, with what amount of funding. This Program has helped many conservation projects throughout the state that have benefited birds and other wildlife. The program is unique to our state and has been a critical source of funding for conservation efforts for many years. Please click the link below for more information.

Bird Monitors
We’re looking for individuals with a moderate to advanced knowledge of bird ID to help our wildlife biologist monitor priority grassland bird species. Volunteers must be able to confidently identify or learn 10-15 grassland bird species by sight and sound. This involves off-trail hiking to specific monitoring points along pre-defined routes from May through August. Routes are available at multiple sites throughout the county. Orientation will be provided (details TBA), but volunteers will be expected to provide their own binoculars. Please contact Jackie Bero by email or call: (815) 678-4532 for additional information.
