Exploring Natural Alabama: Our Amazing Owls

January 13, 2019, 1:00 pm4:00 pm

Barred Owl by Maranda Mink.

The Exploring Natural Alabama series (formerly Audubon Teaches Nature) returns to Oak Mountain for its twenty-eighth 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! 

Our Amazing Owls with special guest Alabama Wildlife Center

Birds of prey are truly masters of the skies. They have keen eyesight, sharp talons, and are adept hunters. Owls have the additional advantage of being nocturnal in their habits. During this program, featuring live birds from AWC’s Education Ambassadors Program, you will learn their various features, adaptations, and field marks to help you identify them in the field. Bring your children and camera to capture the moment! Note there are two programs at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to accommodate everyone.

The details: This event will be held at the Alabama Wildlife Center (404 Terrace Drive, Pelham, Alabama 35124). Cider, punch, and cookies are available before the event—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+).
