Celebrate the legacy of Birmingham birder Russ Bailey with a beginner-friendly field trip to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
Fall is an excellent time to learn to identify native trees by their leaves, fall color, buds, fruits, branch and bark patterns, and site and soil preferences. The class will be organized around the beautifully illustrated new book, Trees of Alabama, by Lisa J. Samuelson with photographs by Michael E. Hogan.
Birding beyond your backyard offers the opportunity to expand your knowledge of birds and gain a better appreciation for the bird diversity in this state. And because Alabama has a wealth of habitats within her borders, it’s no surprise that an array of species has adapted to and exploits this diversity. Come along with our instructor, Greg Harber, as we explore Alabama’s birds and learn where to find them.
