The Exploring Natural Alabama series (formerly Audubon Teaches Nature) returns to Oak Mountain for its twenty-seventh year with seven great programs covering a broad range of Alabama natural history. Co-sponsored by Birmingham Audubon, the Alabama Wildlife Center, and Oak Mountain Interpretive Center, these programs are free, family friendly, and open to the public. Join us!
Bald Eagles: Turtles Are on the Menu with Birmingham Audubon Program & Science Director, Andy Coleman
The recovery of the Bald Eagle from near extinction is one of the United States’s greatest conservation success stories, and that recovery is clearly evident in Alabama. This state has witnessed the exponential increase in mating pairs from zero in the mid-1980s to over two hundred today, and further research is needed. Dr. Coleman, Birmingham Audubon’s Program & Science Director, will discuss the resurgence of eagles in Alabama and their intriguing ecological relationship with turtles.
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+).
