We bring world-class speakers to Birmingham for our Seasonal Audubon Talks series.

During COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended most indoor in-person events to keep our flock safe. In the meantime, we’re offering online programs to keep you informed about the birds you love. We’ll share events similar to our Audubon Talks below when possible until we’re all able to get together in person again.
New! You can now watch some of our recorded Audubon Talks!
See the latest below, or visit our Vimeo page for past talks and more, including our 2020 Fall Audubon Talk: Black Birders and the Deep South.
2021 Spring Audubon Talk—Birds: Coast and Climate
22 April 2021
In 2020, the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico experienced an unprecedented hurricane season with ten of the thirty named storms, formed in the Atlantic basin, making landfall in the region. The threat of increased frequency and severity of storm events is only one of many issues that coastal ecosystems, including coastal birds, face in the wake of climate change. Join Alabama Audubon’s Coastal Biologist, Sabrina Cobb, as she facilitates this important conversation with researchers from across the Gulf Coast on how climate change is impacting coastal systems and the birds that rely on them for this special Earth Day event.
The mission of Alabama Audubon is to promote conservation and a greater knowledge of birds, their habitats, and the natural world. To support our work, donate today at alaudubon.org/give.
