We are happy to help support and encourage landowners in the stewardship of aerial insectivores on their property in Ontario and the Maritimes¹. If you provide and take care of habitat for swifts and/or swallows, please complete the below form to apply for signage (see examples above) recognizing your stewardship actions. Displaying one of these signs is a commitment to maintaining habitat for these species. 

1. Please note that Swallow Friendly Property Signs for the Maritimes are currently unavailable. If you apply for signage and are located in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, or Prince Edward Island, you will be added to a waitlist, and you will be contacted once signs become available. Thank you for your patience!
