MILWAUKEE -

The state's largest city has been named a Bird City.

The Bird City Wisconsin project is modeled on the Tree City USA program.

It recognizes efforts to improve bird habitat, manage woodlands, limit hazards and educate citizens about birds.

Organizers say Milwaukee was recently named along with cities of Marinette and Algoma, the village of Menomonee Falls and the towns of Spring Green and Three Lakes.

The total number of Bird Cities statewide is now at 60.

The Milwaukee Audubon Society named the first cities as part of Bird City Wisconsin in 2010.
