Meet New Hope Audubon staff at class orientation to find out ways you can help
In 2021, North Carolina ranked 2nd in the nation for converting agricultural land to commercial and residential development. Many of these new developments emphasize turf and ornamental plants, providing little nutrition or habitat for birds and other wildlife. This comes at a time when our native birds are already declining in numbers.
Homeowners and land managers can help reverse this trend by incorporating native plants and removing invasive plants in their landscape. New Hope Audubon’s Bird Friendly Habitat Certification program offers education and guidance for creating bird friendly habitats. Spaces as small as a few feet, or several acres, all matter and help build back the habitat we are rapidly losing.
Impact Project Ideas
- Lead a neighborhood, school, place of worship, or corporate campus in creating a bird friendly habitat on their property.
