Join Alabama Audubon for free walks exploring natural sites in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, and other urban areas in our state. Named for Philip Henry Gosse’s early explorations of Alabama flora and fauna, Gosse Nature Walks last from one to two hours and cover a variety of natural-history topics, from birds to plants to geological features. These walks are scheduled during the lunch hour on Fridays to provide access to those who may not be able to join us on weekend, full-day field trips (or for those who don’t like early meet-up times!), and also to offer a lunch-time nature break! They are open to all ages and experience levels; just remember to wear appropriate clothing and walking shoes, and to bring essential outdoor provisions like sunscreen, insect repellent, and water. We usually have a small number of binoculars and field guides on hand, but please bring your own if you have them.
