Create Bird Habitat at home or school:

Several organizations help schools develop wildlife habitat in schoolyards for education and conservation.

Atlanta Audubon Society  - www.atlantaaudubon.org

Georgia Wildlife Federation (GWF) – www.gwf.org

Both offer guidelines to create water, food, shelter and space for wildlife. For funding ideas see  http://birds.cornell.edu/schoolyard

Bird Conservation Organizations:

American Bird Conservancy  

Provides information on a wide range of conservation topics, such as the Cats Indoors Campaign.  Cats kill hundreds of millions of birds each year in the US alone, as well as other wildlife species. – www.abcbirds.org

Local Chapters of the Audubon Society

Lead bird walks open to public of all ages.  Often have monthly meetings with interesting speakers.  Several have regular newsletters. Atlanta Audubon Society teaches a Master Birder Class for those interested in delving more deeply into the study of birds.
