Coastal Bird Stewardship: Saving the Beach Birds with Birmingham Audubon Coastal Senior Biologist Katie Barnes
Blending into the sugar-white, sandy beaches and dunes of Alabama’s coast are several species of sandpipers, plovers, and terns that call our state home for at least part of the year. Keeping tabs on them is the job of our guest speaker, Birmingham Audubon Coastal Senior Biologist Katie Barnes. Join us as Ms. Barnes explores the lives of these coastal birds, the dangers and pitfalls that they face, and what it will take to protect them for future generations to enjoy.
The details: This program will be held at the Alabama Wildlife Center (404 Terrace Drive, Pelham, Alabama 35124). Cider, punch, and cookies are available starting at 1:30—come early for conversation and refreshments! Note that while the program is free, admission to Oak Mountain State Park is $5/adults, $2 for children (4–11) and seniors (62+).
