Leading your troop just got easier.

Bird Welfare Service Patch Program® from MakingFriends.com

Bird Advocate Program

Our bird advocate program is for groups and individuals concerned about the welfare of birds.

Anyone can participate at any level. Volunteer as few as two hours of service or make a lifetime commitment to bird welfare. Girl Scouts*, Boy Scouts and other youth groups can incorporate this patch program®® into their existing program but you don’t need to belong to any organization to participate. Families, friends, neighbors and even individuals can make a difference in improving the welfare of birds in their community.

The suggested requirements are designed to make the program fun, educational and rewarding. All level requirements are flexible. You decide what works best for your group.
