Bird-Safe State Buildings with Audubon Great Lakes

In the next several weeks legislators will be considering a big new step in Illinois, the HB 247 State Bird Safe Buildings Act, which will require state buildings that are newly constructed or significantly altered to include bird safe materials in their construction.
