Bird Town PA - Bird Walks

Birdtownlarge 255X350

Bird Town Pennsylvania works in partnership with local municipalities and like-minded organizations to promote community-based conservation actions to create a healthier, more sustainable environment for birds, wildlife, and people.

Since 2011, the program provides tools for municipalities to engage, educate and empower their residents, schools and businesses to make more ecologically friendly decisions and promotes a culture of conservation where everyone is a potential steward of nature in their own backyard and beyond.

Restoration of natural systems and native plant communities for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, on both private and public lands, has positive impacts on our communities including creating a healthier environment, reducing Stormwater runoff, greenhouse gases and maintenance time, increasing property values and building community pride.

Heritage Tree Program

Do you have a beautiful, old tree on your property?  The Doylestown Township Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) would love to know about it!  EAC has a Heritage Tree Program.  We wish to document all the significant trees within our Township and we need your help.   If you think one of your trees might “fit the bill”, please contact the Township by email at or by phone at 215-348-9915.  We will send a team to measure your tree, confirm the species, and photograph the tree. If you have the largest specimen of that species, we will award you a certificate.  The certificate can be received in person at one of our EAC meetings or we can arrange to have it delivered to your address.

Let’s make Doylestown Township TREEMENDOUS!

Ready for 100

Ready for 100 is a grass-roots initiative that works with individuals and community and political leaders to have municipalities and citizens commit to 100% renewable energy by 2050. The initiative is supported nation-wide by the Sierra Club and is particularly active in Southeast Pennsylvania. You can find more information here: and here:

Ready for 100 has 2 specific goals: for municipalities to commit to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2035, and 100% renewable energy for all uses (including heating and transportation) by 2050.

We can do this. On March 17, 2020, Doylestown Township passed a resolution to become the first municipality in Bucks County to make this commitment. Since then, Buckingham, Solebury, Warrington and Bucks County have all passed resolutions committing to clean, renewable and cost-saving solar energy. Numerous other communities in Bucks are considering their own resolutions.

Since then, our Township has been exploring ways to become more energy efficient and exploring options to move towards renewable energy. However, the municipal facilities use only a tiny fraction of all the energy used in the Township. The next step is to work with large institutions, businesses and residents to move toward clean energy. A formal ‘Energy Transition Plan’ is needed to guide these activities, and community participation is crucial for successful implementation. We want you to be part of the clean energy transition, and your input is important.

Please contact the Doylestown Township EAC if you want to be part of our clean energy future.
