Bird Friendly Communities

Resources to create a bird friendly backyard!

 Bird Friendly Communities help counteract the impacts of development by restoring, enhancing and protecting a landscape that allows for native bird species to survive in a growing community.  By creating open spaces that are wildlife friendly, starting with your own backyard, and encouraging your friends and neighbors to do the same we can create and protect important habitat for wildlife, allowing for a better environment for birds and for people.
