Last fall, members of the Building Trades Council of South-Central Wisconsin completed a conservation project at Cherokee Marsh in Madison. The chimney swift tower provides overnight roosting for these agile, insect-devouring birds. As natural roosting places have dwindled, and chimneys are less common, habitat enhancements like this can make a difference. This project was funded with proceeds from the annual Union Sportsmen’s Alliance conservation dinner.
The Union Sportsmen’s Journal picked up the story in its Spring 2016 issue. Read the story below.
This year’s Madison Area Conservation Dinner will be September 16, at the Alliant Energy Center.
