Nature In The Natural State: Arkansas Bird-Friendly Yards

Do you enjoy watching birds? They are on the decline due to climate change, cats, loss of habitat, industrial threats such as power lines and oil pits, and ever more structures with glass that cause collisions.

What can you do to help? If you have a yard, make it bird friendly.

Arkansas Audubon Society sponsors a certification program called Bird-Friendly Yards. Certification is based on four categories: planting natives and removing invasives, removing hazards, supplying basic needs, and personal actions.

Arkansas Audubon Society’s vision is for our state to become the largest bird sanctuary in the U.S., with safe places for birds to live in and stop at on their migrations.
