By simply choosing native plants for our yards, neighborhood parks, and public spaces, we can create and restore vital habitat for birds in our communities and help birds adapt to and survive the challenges of climate change. Audubon's Plants for Birds program is designed to enable anyone to have a positive impact by planting for birds, right where they live.
With Audubon's Native Plant Database, you can create a customized list of plants native to your area, find out how each species benefits birds, get connected to your local Audubon chapter and native plant nurseries, and help us get 1 million plants in the ground for birds. Growing native plants will attract and protect the birds you love while making your space beautiful, easy to care for, and better for the environment.
Even apartment dwellers can lure birds to their windows with container gardens. Here's how to get yours ready for spring migration.
Trees create habitat and store CO2 for decades to come. Just pick carefully.
