Bird-Friendly Communities

Bird City Minnesota

Healthy communities for birds and people

Transforming the places where people live and work into habitats where birds thrive. 

Bird City helps birds by:

  • Restoring, protecting and improving bird habitat
  • Reducing threats such as window collisions, toxins and harmful human activities, often due to a lack of understanding of birds’ needs
  • Engaging people in learning about, enjoying and helping birds thrive

Our program in Minnesota is modeled after the successful Bird City Wisconsin and Bird Town Pennsylvania programs. It also incorporates some actions from Minnesota GreenStep Cities. We have now recognized our first Minnesota Bird City communities and are working with several new cities to refine procedures and materials. For more information or to get involved, email us
