During this twenty-sixth year of Audubon Teaches Nature we will explore and celebrate the diversity of Alabama’s natural history. These seminars will provide you with the knowledge and skills to allow you to more fully enjoy your time in the field, whether birding, botanizing, hiking or biking. Audubon Teaches Nature will give you the unique opportunity to meet and learn from some of Alabama’s leading naturalists ~ authorities who are willing to share their years of experience and special knowledge to make your outdoor experiences more enjoyable. Our programs are designed to showcase the beauty and natural history of Oak Mountain State Park and the central Alabama region.
November’s ATN program is sure to be a hit for the adventurous among us, as Larry Davenport and Ken Wills takes us on a journey through Alabama! From the rocky outcrops of the Appalachian plateau to the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf coast, Alabama’s landscapes offer abundant wildlife and spectacular vistas for the visitor to enjoy. Whether you are traveling by car, boat or bike, Davenport and Wills offer precise directions to multiple sites across Alabama, highlighting the plant and animal species of local interest to be found there. Be sure to come early for refreshments and the chance to visit with one of the Alabama Wildlife Center’s birds of prey ambassadors (see the info for the January program). Weather permitting there will be a bird walk after the program.
