Spread the Word: Birds Mean Business!
Did you know? Bird watching is the fastest growing outdoor recreation in New York!  According to the Fish and Wildlife Service, in New York alone 3.8 million people watch birds and other wildlife, generating approximately $1.6 billion in ecotourism revenue annually. Audubon New York has created business cards that birders can leave behind with local businesses in locations where they bird watch to show that birders are bringing in the bucks!  Follow the link below to find out how to get your "Birds Mean Business" cards.

Do you see your lawns as a backyard habitat that can and should support a wide variety of birds and other wildlife? We hope so! A healthy, bird-friendly backyard habitat consists of a diverse range of native plant and grass species, which naturally require less maintenance and care as they are already adapted to the local environment. Learn how to help support a variety of birds and native plantings through our Audubon at Home information.
