Welcome our newest Board member, Diane Hofstede! As an eight year riverfront Minneapolis City Council member, Diane has led in key initiatives including to the approval of the Minnesota Vikings Stadium, the rebuild of the 35W Bridge, organized and chaired the Audit Committee that established the financial audit department in the City of Minneapolis, redeveloped the historic Pillsbury A-Mill, and began the rebirth of the Mississippi Riverfront. During her tenure as a multi-term Board Chair of the Minneapolis Public Library, she led approval, fundraising and the successful completion of Minneapolis Downtown Public Library. We are excited to have her on board, where she’ll use her skills to help make our city better for birds.

Board approves the purchase of 12 rolls of ABC Bird-Tape for installation on the Washington Ave. Bridge, a site where many birds are found dead after colliding with the glass enclosure.

Plans were made to increase cooperation and the number of joint activities and initiatives between ACM and the Minnesota Division Izaak Walton League.

Bird ID Board with images of Minnesota birds and their songs is complete and available for use.
