Champion Forest is for the Birds!
In 1980 Champion Forest was designated a Bird Sanctuary by the
Audubon Society. This designation was gained by the work of our Champion Forest Garden Club.
Our Bird sanctuary helps protect birds and encourages the conservation of our environment. When an area is declared a bird sanctuary, there are laws in place to protecting the feathered friends.
Bring birds to your home by growing native plants. With
Audubon’s Native Plant Database, you can find the best plants for the birds in your area. Growing bird-friendly plants will attract and protect the birds you love while making your space beautiful, easy to care for, and better for the environment.
If you find injured or orphaned wildlife contact the
Wildlife Center of Texas.
