Fall Alabama Coastal Bird Surveys (ACBS) are just around the corner—beginning August 20, 2021!  But before ACBS fall surveys begin, join us for our always popular bird identification walks. These are terrific opportunities to learn your coastal birds or to brush up on your bird ID skills. Join Alabama Audubon’s Coastal Biologists, Sabrina Cobb and Olivia Morpeth, for the upcoming Coastal Bird ID Walk on Dauphin Island! This walk is limited to ten participants based on a first come, first served registration. 

If you have any general questions about the bird identification walks, ACBS, how to volunteer, or any other questions, please email us.

The details: Meetup is at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, August 16, at the Dauphin Island Public Pier (1551 Bienville Blvd). Participants will meet in the beach parking lot. Upon entering the gate, tell the gate attendant you are with an Alabama Audubon event.

Trip leaders: Sabrina Cobb (206-501-8054) and Olivia Morpeth (609-548-2228) will lead this trip. Please only contact them the day of the event. In case of bad weather, Sabrina or Olivia will contact you directly with changes.

Please bring the following with you: water, closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, snacks, binoculars (if you have them), and a camera (if you want to bring one). Weather should start out mild and get warmer throughout the walk so dress accordingly. 

Accessibility: Moderate walking on some uneven terrain (sand)

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Through more than seventy-five years of conservation work in one of our nation’s most ecologically rich states, Alabama Audubon has seen firsthand how diversity strengthens natural communities. We believe that the same principle applies to human communities, which is why our organization is committed to providing equitable opportunities for all Alabamians to learn about and enjoy wild birds, their habitats, and the natural world. One of the best ways to support that belief is by valuing and actively seeking to strengthen diversity among our staff, our board, and our membership. To that end, Alabama Audubon welcomes the whole of our community to our work, and strives to make our programs, classes, and events open and accessible to all.
