Birds of North Dakota




We are pleased to announce the completion of our most recent project, “The Birds of North Dakota” exhibit at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck.

The project called for the design and fabrication of four new showcases complete with graphics and scenic work to replace the long time popular favourite, but severely dated, previous version of the exhibit which dated to the early 1980s.

The exhibit features nearly 200 taxidermy specimens representing the diversity of bird life in North Dakota.

Exhibit and Graphic Design: André & Associates Interpretation & Design
Fabrication and Engineering: Niche Design
Specimen mounting: Jeff Whitburn, Nancarrow Taxidermy
Additional scenic: Brad Sickmeyer, Scenic Creations, Steeleville, Il
