The Exploring Natural Alabama series (formerly Audubon Teaches Nature) returns to Oak Mountain for its twenty-eighth year with seven great programs covering a broad range of Alabama natural history. Co-sponsored by Birmingham Audubon, the Alabama Wildlife Center, and Oak Mountain Interpretive Center, these programs are free, family friendly, and open to the public. Join us!
Galapagos: A Virtual Tour of a Natural Wonder with guest speaker Greg Harber – The Galapagos Islands are known for their tortoises and Darwin’s finches, but visitors find that their abundant marine and bird life are appealing, too. In this program, Greg will give you a brief overview of the islands and the abundant wildlife found there.
