Geneva is No. 1 in state - First to get Bird Town designation
The town of Geneva will be the first community in Indiana to be designated as a "Bird Town" by the Indiana Audubon Society, Limberlost State Historic Site Manager Randy Lehman reported at last night's Geneva Town Council meeting. The achievement will be recognized with an official ceremony at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 at the historic site, located at 200 East Sixth St. in Geneva, when representatives of the state Audubon organization will make a formal presentation to village officials.
According to a press release, The Bird Town of Indiana designation is awarded by the Indiana Audubon Society to those communities within the state that have demonstrated an active and continuing commitment to the protection and conservation of native bird populations and habitat.
