Birds In Your Hood is a local educational outreach program, designed by FLAP Canada, that encourages youth to appreciate the diversity of birds in their own neighbourhoods. Our goal is that future generations recognize the beauty of birds, their value in our local ecosystems and be engaged in protecting vulnerable species through bird-safe buildings.
Launched in 2018, Birds in Your Hood encourages students to create their own conservation-based projects, as we engage them in the struggle to protect vulnerable species and save the lives of individual birds by retrofitting buildings to make them bird-safe. FLAP gives presentations about how and when birds migrate and what challenges they face. The presentations may be enhanced by bird walks in neighbourhood parks or around local buildings.
