Bird Town Pennsylvania works in partnership with local municipalities and like-minded organizations to promote community-based conservation actions to create a healthier, more sustainable environment for birds, wildlife, and people. Bird Towns promote environmental awareness through engagement, education, activities and community involvement.

The Bird Town program provides tools for municipalities to engage, educate and empower their residents, schools and businesses to make more positive social, economic and ecologically friendly decisions. Bird Town promotes a culture of conservation where everyone is a potential steward of nature in their own backyard and beyond. Restoration of natural systems and native plant communities for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, on both private and public lands, has positive impacts on our communities, including creating a healthier environment; reducing stormwater runoff, greenhouse gases and maintenance time; increasing property values and building community pride.
