Save the date for our next Black Belt Birding Festival August 4 & 5, 2023!
Alabama Audubon’s Black Belt Birding Initiative works to bring the economic and environmental benefits of bird-based ecotourism to one of the country’s most economically challenged rural areas. Through field trips, special events, research partnerships, and national outreach, we’re leveraging our organization’s expert staff and statewide reach to make a positive difference for the Black Belt’s birds and the people who love them.

2023 Black Belt Birding Festival Vendor Application
Vendor applications are now open for our Third Annual Black Belt Birding Festival in Greensboro, Alabama. In previous years, our festivals have been very successful in bringing hundreds of people to Greensboro. With your help, we can expand our reach even further, both supporting our conservation efforts and providing attendees with a little piece of Alabama to take home.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: July 15, 2023
The vendor expo is tentatively planned to take place inside at Horseshoe Farm, with food trucks and live music in the courtyard—details for the venue will soon be firm based on vendor responses and space capacity.
