Lower Gwynedd Township Bird Town - PA Audubon Society

Lower Gwynedd Township Bird Town

Audubon Society of Pennsylvania

Lower Gwynedd township has become the 24th Audubon Bird Town in Pennsylvania and the fifth in Montgomery County. The township's environmental committee, Gwynedd Green, will work closely with Audubon Pennsylvania and community partners to provide information to residents on ways to create healthier, more sustainable and bird-friendly landscapes while addressing issues such as stormwater management and pesticide usage.

The township is in the Wissahickon watershed, an area of land that contains quality habitat and a critical part of the Atlantic Flyway, the super-highway of bird migration. Lower Gwynedd, with its open space, trail system, and wooded developments, provides rich resources to wildlife and opportunities for people experience nature in their backyard and beyond.

Homes and other properties can be an important part of healthy habitat and can be recognized through Audubon'sBird Habitat Network; residents can register their property, learn more about how to care for the nature around them, and receive incentives such as a business discount card. Homeowners can go to http://pa.audubon.org and select the "register your yard" button to start. There is useful information on the website to help you improve your ecological footprint.

Stewardship workshops, bird walks, and other presentations are being scheduled for Bird Town residents. Please check the website and be sure to like us on Facebook (birdtownpa) where updates are posted.

Audubon is proud to be working with Lower Gwynedd Township and looks forward to many years of nature education and improved landscapes for birds and people! For more information, please contact Steven Saffier of the Gwynedd Green Committee ssaffier@audubon.org.
