“The natural environment benefits when we promote the creation of bird habitats. Planting trees is one way for people to increase an important part of the ecosystem in which birds and other wildlife live.” said Carmel’s Urban Forester, Daren Mindham. Carmel is proud to partner with the Indiana Audubon Society and continues to promote birds by providing natural habitats within its parks system along with providing information on the city website.
The Indiana Audubon Society (www.indianaaudubon.org) is the oldest conservation organization continuously operating in Indiana. It is not a chapter of the National Audubon Society, but an independent statewide organization. It was organized to stimulate an interest in birds and their protection and to serve the needs of youth, civic, churches, and schools. This society provides information concerning birds and educates the public concerning the necessity for conserving and preserving Indiana's natural heritage and its unique flora and fauna.
