Milwaukee is a city that cherishes its roots; you will see revitalized architecture throughout downtown, and a parade of summer festivals celebrating the diverse cultures that make the city what it is today.

Audubon in Wisconsin

The convention will be in the chapter territory of Milwaukee Audubon Society and near Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. Activities and fieldtrips will extend across Wisconsin into the territories of some of our other fantastic Wisconsin chapters. The diverse and robust group of chapters in the Badger State are actively participating in the program and host committees and are looking forward to showing off the bird life and natural wonders of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes region.
