Alabama Coastal Birdfest

The 15th Annual John L. Borom Alabama Coastal BirdFest:
A Birding & Nature Festival

October 3–6, 2018

Join us Oct. 3–6 for 15th annual Alabama Coastal BirdFest, a birding and nature festival! We will be adding information soon about the many opportunities to see birds, alligators, wildflowers, dolphins, and other wildlife—and learn about their habitats. We will also offer workshops at 5 Rivers Delta Center.

BirdFest showcases great bird- and nature-watching spots all around Baldwin and Mobile counties, including Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, Weeks Bay, Mobile-Tensaw Delta, Bayou La Batre, Forever Wild Grand Bay Savanna, Gulf Shores, Bon Secour River, Fly Creek, Environmental Studies Center (a wildlife rehabilitation facility), Alligator Alley (a “gator rescue” facility), and more. BirdFest is a great adventure no matter your level of birding experience.

The Bird & Conservation Expo is our free, family friendly event that takes place at the Halstead Amphitheater on the grounds of Coastal Alabama Community College (formerly Faulkner) in downtown Fairhope, with exhibits, a raptor show, snake show, kids’ activities, and more.
