Bird City Texas

What is Bird City Texas?Bird City Texas logo

If your community cares about birds, habitat, conservation, and the community value (both in quality of life and the monetary value) that comes with certification, then this is the program for you! Apply now to be a certified Bird City Texas community!

This new, community-focused certification program has been created to help people protect birds and their habitats where we live, work, and recreate. The criteria required to attain certification is designed to be impactful and efficient against habitat loss and other harmful factors impacting birds.

Research shows that bird-friendly habitat increases property values, helps control insects, and generates tourism dollars. Where birds thrive, people prosper. From urban centers to rural towns, each community can provide important habitat for birds, and certified communities will receive recognition and community benefits as a result of these efforts.

Science-based bird conservation initiatives and community-centric action will:

  • Enhance and restore habitats
  • Increase native plant coverage in Texas for the benefit of birds and people
  • Reduce population-level threats
  • Increase public awareness of the benefits and challenges of bird conservation
  • Promote environmental stewardship in Texas cities

Audubon Texas and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are pleased to announce the Bird City Texas certification program is now accepting applications. Apply now and start your community on the path towards recognition for all that you do for healthy birds, wildlife, and people! Join the first four certified communities by helping your town become a Bird City Texas community. Applications due December 4, 2020.
