SMAS Bird-Friendly Communities Committee
The human-dominated landscape no longer supports functioning ecosystems or provides healthy places for birds. Our rural landscape is also under threat by loss of forests and farms to development and modern farming practices. Where birds thrive, people prosper. Creating Bird-Friendly Communities is Audubon’s commitment to the sustainability of our urban, suburban, and rural places. We can restore and reconnect these places. We can reestablish the ecological functions of our cities and towns. We can provide essential, safe habitat for birds. Come and learn about the importance of landscaping with native plants, avian architecture for raptors and Osprey, and other threats that exist and how we can help. Light refreshments and mingling starts at 7 p.m. Public invited. Inquiries to Lynne Wheeler, 301-751-8097 or firstname.lastname@example.org
