Registration is now open for the 12th annual Alabama Coastal BirdFest!

This year's event starts with workshops and the opening reception on Wednesday, Sept. 30, and continues three full days days with more than 30 expertly guided trips on land and by boat to prime bird and nature watching spots—plus two evening speaker events, additional workshops, and the free, family friendly Bird & Conservation Expo in Fairhope on Saturday, Oct. 3. 

We've expended to feature more of what you love about  our wild and beautiful Gulf Coast by becoming a birding & nature festival! Along with great birding trips to spots on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, we have exciting new trips—on foot and by boat—that focus on more of our great outdoors. You'll see and learn more about alligators, dolphins, wildflowers, pitcher plants, pine forests, butterflies, snakes, turtles, and more. 

Register now for the 2015 Alabama Coastal BirdFest!
