Bird Town is a working partnership of Audubon and municipalities in
Pennsylvania to promote conservation and community-based actions to
create a healthy, more sustainable environment for birds and people.
Audubon provides the tools for the municipality to engage their residents,
schools and businesses in making more ecologically-friendly decisions,
conserving energy and in the process, saving money. A Bird Town makes
efforts to restore valuable ecosystem services to create a culture of
conservation where everyone is a potential steward of nature in their
backyard and beyond.
The power of Bird Town comes from individuals taking actions on their
landscape and in their home to be greener, experience nature every day,
and contribute the town’s overall efforts to minimize environmental
impacts. For example, by planting native plants and registering your
property with Audubon, valuable data will be added to the town's
scorecard that will continue to improve each year. Contribute to citizen
science and you and your family become key players in the world of bird
conservation! As neighborhoods work together, corridors of improved
habitat will welcome returning spring migrants, letting us know we are
on the right path!
