The City is working on creating programming, content, and outreach efforts to support this initiative.

Why a Bluebird?

The bluebird symbolizes hope, love, and renewal in many cultures. Even in the harshest climates, when bluebirds have a scarcity of food, they will manage to sing cheerfully. It is a sign that you should never lose faith, even in your darkest hours. You must hold to the belief that it will all be alright in the end.
