Alabama Wildlife Center & Exploring Natural Alabama – Bald Eagles: Turtles are on the Menu
February 4 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
This program concerns the resurgence of eagles in Alabama and their intriguing ecological relationship with turtles. Complimentary refreshments are offered at 1:30 pm in the Alabama Wildlife Center observation room followed by the program at 2:00 pm in the AWC auditorium.
Andrew Coleman-Bham Audubon Science & Program Director, Guest Speaker. The recovery of the Bald Eagle from near extinction is one of the United States’ greatest conservation success stories, and that recovery has been evident in Alabama. This state has witnessed the exponential increase in mating pairs from zero in the mid-1980’s to over 200 today, and further research is needed. Andrew will discuss the resurgence of eagles in Alabama and their intriguing ecological relationship with turtles. Weather permitting, an informal nature walk follows the program so be sure to bring your camera, binoculars & field guides. (Free after paid admission to Oak Mountain State Park.)
