Putnam Habitat Restoration

Young birds need healthy, natural spaces in which to thrive, and new research indicates that our own children do, too. Thanks to our partnerships with Jones Valley Teaching Farm and Desert Island Supply Co., we’re working to provide students at Birmingham W.E. Putnam Middle School with just that.

By removing invasive plants like Chinese privet and Bradford pear, Birmingham Audubon is opening up room for the school’s forest understory to regenerate, and providing access for the students and teachers to study the Brown-headed Nuthatches, White-eyed Vireos, and Red-tailed Hawks that call their schoolyard home.
