Whitefish Point Bird Observatory | Paradise, Michigan

WordPress Design & Consulting
for a Michigan Environmental Organization

Project Description

Since 2012, AKEA Web Solutions has worked with Michigan Audubon. Michigan Audubon is a nonprofit in Okemos, Michigan. They manage an organization called WPBO (Whitefish Point Bird Observatory). While hosting a network of multiple birding websites, AKEA has been supporting and providing website hosting services for WPBO since 2016.

Visit Website

The WPBO website redesign took place in 2017. This project is what AKEA calls a WordPress Website Conversion project. AKEA was able to take the former WPBO website and convert it to WordPress which offers an elegant and intuitive user interface for content management and visual editing tools.

The initial web design project spanned 1 month and involved web consulting, design, WordPress development and user-training for staff.

AKEA is proud to work with Michigan Audubon and the WPBO initiative and we are ready to work with your nonprofit or environmental organization.

Clients Testimonial

We really needed to take our Whitefish Point Bird Observatory website to the next level. AKEA Web Solutions came through by helping us provide a timely and engaging experience for our users while offering a platform that is quick and easy for us to maintain. We’d much rather spend our time in the field connecting birds and people than being chained to our desks keeping our website up-to-date.
