"Every spring and fall, tens of millions of migrating birds sweep through the Great Lakes region on their way to breeding grounds, relying on stopover sites in the state for critical food and shelter," said Kim Grveles, Wisconsin stopover initiative coordinator for the Department of Natural Resources. "Loss of stopover habitats poses an ongoing threat to the health and stability of migratory bird populations in the Great Lakes region, including the Lake Michigan basin of Wisconsin."
The program will teach us about Great Lakes stopover sites, what birds migrate through the Lake Michigan basin, how to create or enhance stopover habitat and other important information for management consideration.
