Morrisville Borough has been officially designated as a Bird Town, and has accomplished a great deal. Under the leadership of a very enthusiastic teacher and an energetic Master Gardener, the MV Aviators (afterschool green club at Morrisville Intermediate/High School) have presented at an Environmental Symposium in Maryland, been present for Peregrine banding in Harrisburg, and have created a courtyard garden that thrives with life.
The Audubon Society provides the tools for residents, schools and businesses to make ecologically-friendly decisions, conserving energy and saving money. The Bird Town program promotes efforts to create communities where everyone is a steward of nature in their backyard and beyond.
