World Migratory Bird Day in Fond du Lac

World Migratory Bird Day is officially coming up on May 12th, but Fond du Lac is getting an early start on the celebration. 

Fond du Lac was named one of Wisconsin’s “Bird Cities” in 2012, and Laura DeGolier says “we have to put on a celebration that reminds people of the value of birds, encourage people to plant bird habitat…and we do it at this time of the year, because that’s when the birds are moving.”

Birdwatching tour in the Kottensforst

On Saturday the 12th May, from 9am to 12am you will have the opportunity to look for a range of migratory birds during a guided birdwatching tour led by a NABU expert who will give you all the information about the species currently staying in Bonn. 

To participate, please register with Andreas Kepper (0228253869)
