Habitat Hero is a program of Audubon Rockies, which is the regional office of the National Audubon Society for Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. Habitat Hero addresses habitat loss (one of the greatest threats to birds) by empowering people, businesses, and local governments to create bird habitat by planting bird-friendly gardens.
The simple act of planting native plants is one of the most direct ways you can help birds. Native plants provide better sources of food for birds, require less water, and reduce or eliminate chemical pesticide and fertilizer use.
If you’d like to do more to help birds by gardening, I hope you’ll take any and all of the following actions:
- Browse our resources
- Register for an upcoming event
- Certify your bird-friendly garden
- Volunteer as a Wildscape Ambassador
- Donate to Audubon Rockies
