Audubon's Samara Project has bloomed in York. All summer long, neighbors, partners, volunteers, students, scouts, and more have come together to create bird-friendly spaces that are as beautiful for the community as they are beneficial for wildlife and water quality. Scroll through the scrapbooks below to see in photographs how "grass to garden" became a reality.
