program which encourages individual property owners to improve their
backyard habitat, and Bird Town rolls up the actions of these individuals

Bird Town’s mission is to reduce this trend by encouraging the use of
native plants, shrubs, and trees, by implementing stormwater management
practices, by reducing use of chemicals and pesticides, by reducing lawns,
and by creating a culture of conservation.
