Columbus Audubon offers the Conservation Grant Program to support the conservation of Ohio’s native bird species through habitat management efforts, habitat protection (through easements or acquisition) and scientific research which occurs in central Ohio. Preference will be given to projects that support National Audubon Society’s Bird-Friendly Communities initiative. The initiative is aimed at helping people to make bird-friendly lifestyle choices in their homes, backyards, and communities, including:
Native Plants for Birds
By simply choosing native plants when we landscape our yards, neighborhood parks, and public spaces, we can help restore vital habitat for birds in our communities.
Lights Out: Creating Safe Passage
Cities across the flyways are turning off their lights at night, reducing the disorienting effect of light pollution, thereby saving tens of thousands of birds each year, including Black-throated Blue Warblers, American Woodcocks, and Varied Thrushes.
Avian Architecture: Providing Good Homes for Birds
From Prothonotary Warblers and Chimney Swifts to Osprey and Burrowing Owls, many species of birds can be given a better chance to survive and thrive through a little assistance from structures we build—birdhouses, roosting towers, nest platforms, and artificial burrows. For some species, these structures tip the scales back in their favor, reducing declines in populations and restoring species to places they once inhabited.
