Who would think Wisconsin’s most populous county would have some of its most important habitat for birds?🦉

More than 250 species of birds have been documented in Milwaukee County Parks. Its 15,000 acres have immense value for refueling migratory birds during their journey along the Lake Michigan coast earning Milwaukee County Park System the designation as an “Important Bird Area” by the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative. Congratulations, Milwaukee County!
