CHIRP is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of birds, butterflies, and other creatures of habitat, through hands-on and interactive programs and gardens.

We proudly led our hometown of Alpine, California, to be recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as America's FIRST Community Wildlife Habitat, so-certified on May 1, 1998.

This was accomplished by becoming a community OF habitats. We continue to educate and assist property owners in how to make their property more winged-wildlife friendly.

Our ongoing projects include the Annual Sage & Songbirds Festival and Garden Tour, CHIRP Garden Club, and various educational programs for our schoolyards and backyards.

We are supported through grants, donations, programs and fundraisers. All proceeds benefit habitat education programs.
