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.
If your municipality is not quite ready to become a Bird Town but is interested in learning more, consider the Bird Town Pledge by completing page 1 of the application (see pdf below). This will loop your town in to some Bird Town communications and provide some tools in anticipation of your future full application into the program. There is no fee associated with this level of application and your town will be listed on the website as a Bird Town pledge-level municipality. This is open to any municipality in Pennsylvania.
