Modeled on the “Tree City USA” program and the highly successful Bird City Wisconsin, Indiana Audubon Society is pleased to announce Bird Town Indiana beginning in 2013. If a community meets at least seven criteria, it becomes an official Bird Town. Indiana Bird Towns are those that both the public officials and citizens demonstrate an active and ongoing commitment to the protection and conservation of bird populations and their habitats.
These members belong to Audubon groups, nature preserves, land trusts, bird clubs, museums, garden clubs, school groups, chambers of commerce, and other eco-minded businesses that can come together for effective planning, development, and implementation of Bird Town strategies.
Note: Effective for 2013, the inaugural year, all Bird Town Indiana application fees are waived! For more information, contact us!
