The Audubon Society of Pennsylvania is working with local municipalities
to promote conservation and community-based actions to
create a more sustainable environment for birds and people.
The Audubon Society provides the tools for residents,
schools and businesses to make ecologically-friendly decisions,
conserving energy and saving money. A Bird Town makes
efforts to create communities where everyone is a steward of nature in their
backyard and beyond.
The power of this program comes from individuals taking actions on their
landscape and in their home to be greener, experience nature every day,
and contribute the community’s 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.
You and your family can 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!
The Audubon Society website has further descriptions of this program,
as well as other important information about birds and birding programs in our area.
Other area towns include Upper Moreland, Upper Salford, and Marlborough in Montgomery County,
Newtown Township, Solebury, Falls Township, and Springfield Township in Bucks County, and Allentown,
Lower Macungie, Salisbury, and Bethlehem in Lehigh County, and Longswamp Township in Berks County.
