Call for Proposals: Chimney Swift Tower Artistic Design and Implementation, Mequon, WI (posted 4-5-17)
The Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department (Department) has built and installed a chimney swift nesting and roosting tower at Virmond County Park in the City of Mequon specially designed to provide habitat for chimney swifts, a declining native migratory bird species.  The Department is also using the tower to help raise awareness about this imperiled species and the importance of habitat conservation in addition to providing habitat for chimney swifts.  The Department is requesting proposals from an artist or group to create and implement their ideas for a design to make the tower more aesthetically pleasing while providing educational opportunities. The full Project Call for Proposals can be downloaded from Ozaukee County’s Bid Posting page at Project proposals are due by 5:00 pm Thursday, June 1, 2017 and should be submitted electronically to  A committee of artists and Department staff will review the proposals for design aesthetics and implementation feasibility and make a decision by July 15, 2017.

Often called “Flying Cigars,” chimney swifts are beautiful birds that provide benefits to our natural surroundings by eating many nuisance insects. Originally nesting in hollow trees, chimney swifts began moving into homes with wood/coal furnaces and chimneys due to habitat loss. As gas furnaces replaced wood and coal, many chimneys were either torn down or modified with openings that do not allow chimney swift entrance and nesting.  The constructed tower is an effort to address the need for additional nesting and roosting habitat.

The chimney swift tower installation is complimentary with other ecological improvement efforts being implemented by the Department, including the installation and monitoring of bluebird, wood duck, and kestrel nest boxes.  Department staff are monitoring the boxes and conducting a variety of avian, fish and wildlife surveys with the assistance from volunteers to gain a better understanding of the species breeding in or migrating through Ozaukee County.  These combined efforts assist in the decision making processes for protecting and restoring habitat that benefit birds and other wildlife species.

Please contact Tina Kroening at 262-236-2006 or for additional information on the chimney swift tower project or getting involved with other ecologically-related opportunities through the Department.
