Why do birds fly south for the winter? Because it's too far to walk! All joking aside, bird migration is a magnificent feat. Help the Milwaukee County Zoo celebrate the return of migratory birds. This annual eco-friendly event that commemorates International Migratory Bird Day and Earth Day invites you to go green. Stop by the ATC outreach booth for wildflower seed packet giveaways and a meet-n-greet with horticulture expert Melinda Myers. Plant tree saplings in the Zoo's Acres for the Atmosphere to support polar bear conservation. Learn ways that you can help migrating birds. Craft a bird decal for windows to help prevent bird collisions. Then, visit the native plant sale and find out how to decrease invasive plants.
