Create Your Own Oasis at Home

Migratory birds need places to rest and refuel. Hundreds of species migrate through our flyway—the Atlantic Flyway—and through our community every spring and fall. That means your yard and neighborhood is an opportunity to fill in the gaps for migrants along the flyway, as places for birds to find food and shelter.

Be a part of the solution—transform your own yard into an Urban Oasis for birds and other wildlife too! Check out these resources to help you get started.
