Alabama Wildlife Center & Exploring Natural Alabama - Coastal Bird Stewardship: Saving the Beach Birds

April 15, 2018 in Pelham , AL

1:30pm - 4pm


Katie Barnes-Bham. Audubon senior coastal biologist, Guest Speaker. Blending into the sugar white sandy beaches and dunes of Alabama's coast are several species of sandpipers, plovers and terns that call Alabama home at least part of the year. Keeping tabs on them is the job of our guest speaker, Katie. Join us as she explores the lives of these coastal birds, the dangers and pitfalls they face, and what it will take to protect them for future generations to enjoy. Weather permitting, an informal nature walk follows the program so be sure to bring your camera, binoculars & field guides. (Free after paid admission to Oak Mountain State Park.)
