What is a Bird-Friendly Community?

A Bird-Friendly Community promotes a healthy environment that supports birds, provides accessible opportunities for everyone to experience the wonder of birding, and unites our community through a shared appreciation for nature. We invite you to be part of Houston Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Community and commit to improving our lives and the lives of future Houstonians.

This important community resource is made possible with the support of The Meadows Foundation.
