One of the biggest bird conservation threats is habitat loss. To address this, our Habitat Hero program provides people, businesses, and cities with the resources to create bird habitat in their own communities. By planting bird-friendly gardens with native plants, not only are we creating more beautiful and water-efficient communities; we’re connecting people to nature. Learn how you can conserve birds through native gardening.
