On a global scale, birds are facing many challenges; fragmented habitats, exotic invasive species, sterile lawns, pollution and toxic pesticides, urbanization, and domestic predators are taking a toll on our bird populations. Story County is already doing good work in protecting and restoring valuable habitat, reducing threats to birds, and educating and engaging people in birding and conservation.
