The Township of King is honoured to receive a Bird Friendly City Certificate through Nature Canada’s certification program. Certification is earned by creating and maintaining an environment where birds can thrive. King has done this through a variety of sustainable practices that include developing pollinator gardens to promote healthy bird habitats and promoting birding opportunities at Cold Creek Conservation Area, as well as partnering with the Dufferin Marsh, a migratory bird stop-over site. We thank Nature Canada for recognizing that King is a place where birds can be seen and enjoyed, and where there is a commitment to birds thriving in the future in this community.”
