Springfield, Massachusetts has been selected to participate in a federal conservation program for migratory birds.
The designation comes with a small amount of money from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to improve bird habitat in the city and develop educational programming.
Regreen Springfield, a nonprofit conservation organization, is leading the city’s participation in the Urban Bird Treaty program.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the organization’s president Dave Bloniarz.
