Check out our upcoming events here.

Join us for our first-ever coastal Gosse Nature Walk in Daphne at Bayfront Park! This is one of our Audubon Coastal Bird Survey (ACBS) routes, and the trail encompasses coastal beach habitat, some marsh, as well as the upland forested area. The park consists of multiple boardwalks and a couple of piers that we can easily access for looking out over the bay. Open to all!

The details: Meetup will be at the lower parking lot at 6200 Bayfront Park Drive, Daphne, where the coastal trail starts.

As always, remember to bring water and snacks, insect repellent, rain gear, sunblock, and seasonally appropriate attire. If you have your own binoculars, you’ll definitely want to bring them along—we’ll have a limited number of loaners on hand.

In the case of inclement weather, the event may be cancelled. You may contact the trip leader the morning of the event if the weather is questionable.

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.
