To promote and preserve the beauty of our community
In 1994, John Porter, Illinois' 10th District Congressman read a resolution that the month of February would become National Bird Feeding Month. Mr. Porter spoke to the Speaker of the House, recognizing that February was one of the most difficult months in the United States for wild birds. During this month, individuals are encouraged to provide food, water, and shelter to wild birds in areas with cold temperatures and limited natural resources like plants and berries. Participating in National Bird Feeding Month will help wild bird populations survive winter and provide you with backyard entertainment.
