Bird Conservation Lessons from the Great Depression

This past week Audubon Birdscapes features posts on:

Local Bird Refuges. Who says you can't do bird conservation during an economic downturn? Check out this 1937 government brochure on how to make cemeteries, roadways, and other neighborhood landscapes into bird refuges.

Wood Ducks. You've seen the boxes. Maybe you've even put one up yourself. Do you know the history behind the box?

Dimming the Way
. Check out the latest Audubon magazine online exclusive about how folks are trying to design buildings that are safer for birds.

Bird Helping Hero: Malcolm Wells. What would the world look like if all our buildings were designed not just so they didn't kill birds, but as actual bird habitat? Check out what even a gas station could look like if we really cared!

So take a mental health break, stop in at Audubon Birdscapes and get inspired!
