A North Dakota nonprofit organization has been recognized for its conservation efforts.

Audubon North Dakota received the Environmental Award from the River Keepers for its Urban Woods and Prairies Initiative in the Fargo-Moorhead community. The initiative was founded in 2014 to increase bird habitat along the Red River.

"Through that effort we are restoring habitat. So prairie acres and then woodland acres as well, for the benefit of our urban birds, pollinators, wildlife. Restoring ecological services, like flood resiliency, which is obviously very important here in the Red River," said Sarah Hewitt, Audubon Dakota conservation director.

Audubon Dakota's birding festival is open to the public Saturday, May 14, at Forest River Park in Fargo.
