From the early 1800's to the present, the land now known as Birdsong was transformed from pristine longleaf pine forest to a plantation, then farm, and now a center for conservation and learning.   Founders Betty and Ed Komarek created this haven for wildlife so others will have a place to experience nature and become inspired to protect natural resources everywhere. Using fire, they created habitats that support a great diversity of wildlife species. The resulting living museum and outdoor classroom are used year round for natural history instruction and hands-on learning.
