Birds of a feather flock together and Nashville’s newest feat as an Urban Bird Treaty City will ensure just that.

Nashville was recently recognized as the first city in Tennessee and 31st in the nation to achieve this designation. The program seeks to conserve urban habitats and reduce hazards for birds + educate and engage communities to care for the animal.

As many as six Nashville agencies are responsible for making this happen after identifying goals, objectives, and actions to make the city a greener place for the community and its migratory birds as part of the Nashville Bird Agenda.
