We plan to spend most of our day searching for birds at the former Badger Army Ammo lands (Sauk Prairie Recreation Area) just south of Devils Lake State Park.
In 2003, biologists with the Wisconsin DNR found that these lands provide habitat for 97 confirmed or probable breeding bird species, of which 21 are grassland and shrubland dependent.
Since 1990, Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger (www.cswab.org) has demanded that the US Army perform a complete and comprehensive cleanup of the former Badger Army Ammo lands to ensure future generations will not be burdened with the legacy of pollution from Badger.
You can donate a set amount to our team, or pledge an amount per species that we see.
Your donation or pledge supports the Bird Protection Fund and state-wide projects that protect the year-round migrating, breeding, and wintering needs of Wisconsin's birds. All donations and pledges are tax-deductible.
If you would like to make a per-species pledge, rather than a single donation to our whole team, please pledge to the team captain's page.
Thanks for supporting the Prairie Pipers team, and for helping our state's birds!
Our fundraising goal: $250
$235 raised so far $15 to go!
