Town of Rome maintains Bird City status
For the Rapids City Times
ROME – The town of Rome has once again achieved “Sustained Flight” status in the Bird City Wisconsin program. In 2016, Rome became the 96th community in the state to officially be recognized as a Bird City. Since 2016, Rome has annually submitted applications and received acceptance for Bird City Renewal.
Bird City Wisconsin was established in 2009. The program recognizes municipalities for the conservation and education activities that they undertake to make their communities healthier for birds and people. To receive a Bird City title, a community must meet criteria spread across six categories: habitat creation and protection, community forest management, limiting threats to birds, education, energy and sustainability, and the official recognition and celebration of World Migratory Bird Day.
