Kennett Township is proud to be a Bird Town! A Bird Town makes efforts to restore valuable ecosystem services to create a culture of conservation where everyone is a potential steward of nature in their backyard and beyond. This designation is a partnership between our Township and Audubon. If you are not familiar with Audubon, they have a century of conservation history in Pennsylvania and work to promote conservation and community-based actions to create a healthy, more sustainable environment for birds and people. Let this page be your resource for what to plant in your yard, and what birds you can attract!
The 2020 Birdy Dozen
Birds and insects need native plants! For many, native plants provide essential food they can’t get from other types of plants. Have a positive impact on your local landscape by adding one or more to your garden this year. The birds will thank you!
Whether you grow your blooms in containers, window boxes, a yard, or a traditional garden, consider adding natives to your home this season. Native plants, shrubs, and trees look beautiful AND provide critical habitat to birds, bees, butterflies, and more. Plus, they require less water and fertilizer, saving you time and money!
