Yesterday, Ruffner Mountain released their list of events for February and March. Make sure to bookmark their calendar and check on it regularly. New activities are continually being added and updated.
Yesterday, social media blew up in the Alabama birding world.
Led by the Birmingham Audubon Society, birders from around the area drove to Avondale Park and eagerly watched their Facebook newsfeed to get a glimpse of Ross’s Goose, a bird that is rarely seen upclose in Alabama and the Deep South.
In the bird world they are “rock stars” – the Bald Eagle and the Eurasian Eagle Owl. The public loves them and people want to see them up-close.
Soon, bird lovers from all over the South and the country will get an opportunity to see our national symbol and the world’s largest owl up-close and personal at the Alabama Wildlife Center.
Now, Birmingham Audubon Society has two great traditions during the Christmas season.
Along with the Birmingham Audubon Society’s (BAS) 81st Annual Christmas Bird Count, the organization held it’s first Christmas Salamander Count on the same day – December 23rd – at Ruffner Mountain.
Almost every Tuesday, Rojo, a neighborhood restaurant in the Highlands Park area, holds a 10% Tuesday night for local charities.
As the 2016 calendar year comes to an end, more than 40 nonprofit organizations have benefited from the weekly events, raising over $26,000.
Alabama conservation organizations and leaders are unified in their support of State Parks Amendment 2 for tomorrow’s election.
