Audubon Pennsylvania, the state office of The National Audubon Society, is dedicated to conserving and restoring natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. In Philadelphia, Audubon PA staff have been engaging children and adults in conservation action for more than 10 years.  Audubon PA is looking for Impact100 funding to convert an abandoned greenhouse to cultivate a thriving, sustainable, native plant propagation program. Native plants are vital because they provide the food birds need to survive in a way that non-native plants cannot. Philadelphia is a critical location on one of the country’s major bird migratory routes, The Atlantic Flyway. Habitat restoration with native plants is also a significant tool in storm water management. Increasing the percentage of pervious surface by restoring and protecting native plant habitat will help manage the increasing amounts of rainwater.
