Janet Krevenas, a representative of Bird Town Pennsylvania, addresses Kennett Township supervisors and residents during the June 21 meeting.

The new Bird Town signs that residents will see around Kennett Township show the township’s ongoing commitment to birds and environmental sustainability, according to a representative from Bird Town Pennsylvania.

“Coming into your township here, I’ve noticed you have a wealth of really good landscape, good for birds and wildlife,” Janet Krevenas said at Wednesday’s Kennett supervisors’ meeting.

A December 2022 resolution recognized the supervisors’ commitment to having Kennett recognized as a Bird Town Pennsylvania.

“… to engage in new efforts to live lighter on the land and provide a healthier environment for the people and birds of our town, Kennett Township wishes to commit to ecological initiatives and by doing so, we will be recognized as a Bird Town Pennsylvania community,” according to resolution 2022-12.

In December 2019, the supervisors adopted a resolution to become an Audubon Bird Town. Since 2021, Bird Town Pennsylvania, which is part of the Pennsylvania Audubon Council, has been transitioning the Audubon Bird Towns to ones under Bird Town Pennsylvania.

Krevenas presented the supervisors with four new signs and a certificate recognizing Kennett becoming a Bird Town Pennsylvania.

“The signs are really our commitment not just to birds but to our environment and sustainability,” Krevenas said.

Bird Town Pennsylvania’s mission is to work “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,” according to its website.

Kennett Township is one of six Bird Town municipalities in Chester County. Others include Malvern Borough and the townships of Charlestown, Schuylkill, Tredyffrin, and West Vincent.
