This year marks the mid-point of the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II, a critical year for ensuring we’re on track to complete this monumental effort by 2019. Help us get 2017 off to a dynamic start by joining us at one (or more!) of our FREE Atlas Regional Kickoff workshops.
These events are for everyone, whether you’re a newer member of the Atlas team, a seasoned veteran, or just want to learn more about how to join us in 2017. Each workshop will feature concurrent presentations tailored to new and returning atlasers, the opportunity to meet county coordinators and expert birders from your region, and a field trip to a local hotspot.
