The Indiana Audubon Society’s mission is to stimulate interest in birds and their protection. Their program “Bird Town Indiana” highlights specific Indiana communities that have taken efforts towards this mission.
Noble County is fortunate enough to be home to three of the 14 Bird Towns in Indiana. These cities are Kendallville, Rome City, and Albion.
So what qualifies a bird town? Well, there is an extensive application process which must express a town’s efforts to protect natural communities of birds, participate in natural resource management, remove bird hazards, and educate the public.
Noble County has a variety of places to go and observe wildlife. Visit one of our many parks, Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site, ACRES Landtrust, or Chain O’Lakes State Park.
Here you can observe birds in their natural habitats. Noble County is home to many colorful birds like Blue Jays, Orioles, Cardinals, and Blue Herons.
If you’re interested in exotic birds, visit Black Pine Animal Sanctuary in Albion to see birds rescued from captivity.
We are proud to be a county that takes the effort in preserving wildlife so YOU can enjoy it!
