Bird Town Doylestown
Audubon Society of Pennsylvania

Doylestown Borough and Township have joined the Audubon's Bird Town initiative to promote landscaping systems and restored natural heritage. The program includes review of homeowners’ property for bird friendly plantings and other habitat features by a trained Birdtown consultant. Participants in the program will also receive a listing of indigenous plantings that promote bird visitation.

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!


 

Active Bird Town programs are underway in many communities, including Abington, Cheltenham Township, Doylestown Borough & Township, Lower Gwynedd Township, Morrisville, New Britain Borough, Radnor, and Upper Dublin.

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.
