In addition to the work currently installed along the recreational trail in the 20-acre Stevens Point Sculpture Park, 2012 will mark the installation of several pieces linking nature to art. In partnership with the Aldo Leopold Audubon Society, the Stevens Point Sculpture Park will be installing sculptural chimney swift nesting towers. Many constructed chimney swift towers are primarily utilitarian. This project is focused on exploring the aesthetic possibilities of this medium and raise awareness about this bird. The Stevens Point Sculpture Park trail connects to the 30.5 mile Green Circle Trail, including the Green Circle Birding Trail. Along its length, the trail meanders through a variety of central Wisconsin habitats, including sedge meadows, cattail marshes, deciduous and pine woodlands, prairies, oak savanna, and riparian areas. The path follows the banks of the Wisconsin and Plover Rivers, and provides access to McDill Pond and Lake Joanis. The mixture of habitats make this trail an ideal place to see an incredible diversity of bird species, from waterfowl to raptors, from songbirds to woodpeckers. Stevens Point was named a Wisconsin "Bird City" in 2011.
