Our next coastal Gosse Nature Walk will be in Foley at Graham Creek Nature Preserve (23030 Wolf Bay Drive). With around 500 acres of natural beauty, Graham Creek Nature Preserve provides protection for rare plant and animal species by preserving their unique habitats and enhancing and restoring natural areas. Join our Coastal Outreach Manager, Cortney, and a special guest from the preserve for this lunchtime nature break and to learn all about the plants and animals we come across as we explore this beautiful area.

Graham Creek Nature Preserve is part of the Coastal, South Baldwin County Loop of the Alabama Birding Trails.

The details: Meetup is at noon. The address for the park is 23030 Wolf Bay Dr., Foley, AL 36535. We will meet next to the main parking lot in front of the nature center. 

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—but we will have a few pairs on hand to lend out for the duration of the walk. 

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.
