Altoona, WI - The City of Altoona is proud to announce their recent recognition as a Bird City Wisconsin community. Altoona becomes the second Eau Claire County community recognized, joining the City of Eau Claire.  Bird City Wisconsin now spans the state and includes 108 communities.

Bird City Wisconsin, a program of the Milwaukee Audubon Society, was created in 2009 and began recognizing communities the following year. The program recognizes municipalities for the conservation and education activities that they undertake to make their communities healthy for birds and people. To be recognized as a Bird City, 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 International Migratory Bird Day.
