“Atlanta Audubon and its partners play an important role in creating bird resiliency in the Southeast,” Atlanta Audubon executive director, Nikki Belmonte said in a recent press release. “The Habitat Restoration Fund aims to increase high-quality habitat for birds while also increasing community partnerships and educational outreach.
