Help Birds Tip
Why: People who spend time outside are happier, healthier, and more productive. They also live longer and heal faster. And if you are reading this blog, we need you to support the environment that birds depend upon.
How: Go for a walk. For example, you might walk around the block, stroll in a park, or visit a local garden. Join a bird walk with your local Audubon chapter to learn more about birds. Or just sit in your yard.
Bonus Idea: Take someone with you. For example, you could invite a neighbor, friend, or relative to join you. Or you could plan a walk with a child. Then use this as an educational opportunity to point out birds, wildlife, and plants.
