Bird Town Pennsylvania has developed a list of habitat friendly certification/registration programs that are available to property owners. Some of these certifications can be used by large properties as well as a variety of residential sized gardens. This is not a finite list. If you are aware of another organization that is certifying habitat for property owners, please let us know so we can share the information.
Why would Bird Town Pennsylvania promote certifications/registrations?
While each program has a primary focus, each offers a very similar path to sustainable and wildlife friendly development. After all, what is good for pollinators is good for birds and vice versa. A garden intended to provide good habitat for bees and butterflies is also providing food for birds.
Our goal is to engage all property owners and managers who care about providing good habitat for ecological diversity and a sustainable future. It is our vision to build highways of sustenance and safety to counterbalance the tremendous loss of living space for birds, plants, and all native species.
