Providing a pretty home for the birds

Schoolchildren from five Ozaukee County schools — one in each of the county’s school districts — worked with artist Sally Duback to create a mosaic to decorate a chimney swift tower at Virmond Park that the county built recently. The tower was unveiled during a May 19 ceremony attended by (from left) Parks and Planning Director Andrew Struck, Supr. Jennifer Rothstein, Nicole Lightwine, Natalie Duback, Lucy Duback, artist Sally Duback, Grace Duback, Ozaukee Elementary School art teacher Mandy Culver and Thorsen Elementary School art teacher Molly Petre. The tower is expected to not just provide a nesting and roosting tower for chimney swifts, a declining native migratory bird, but also to raise awareness of the imperiled species and the need for habitat conservation.
