Exploring Natural Alabama: Those Amazing Fishes of Alabama
May 6, 2018, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
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!
Those Amazing Fishes of Alabama with guest speaker Mike Howell
Alabama is blessed with an abundance of waterways; from mountain streams to blackwater sloughs to coastal bays, this state has it all. Beneath those 77,000 miles of freshwater rivers and streams lies more aquatic biodiversity than in any other state, including 38% of all North American fish species. Collectively, darters are the most colorful of these fishes. This program will showcase not only this dazzling array of darters, but also many other fish species that call Alabama’s waterways home. Join us for this last seminar before our summer break!
The details: This program will be held at the Oak Mountain Interpretive Center, just across the street from 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+).
