Bird City Illinois
The Commission is excited to announce that the Village of Libertyville has achieved Bird City Illinois status from the Audubon Council of Illinois!

To become a Bird City, a municipality must demonstrate its dedication to birds across six categories: (1) Habitat Creation, Protection, and Monitoring of Natural Communities, (2) Limiting or Removing Threats to Birds, (3) Education and Inclusion, (4) Climate and Sustainability, (5) World Migratory Bird Day, and (6) Bird City Resolution.
