The 12th Annual Alabama Coastal BirdFest is Sept. 30–Oct. 3, 2015, and it's going to be a good one! Did we add a day? Not really, but we're including Wednesday, Sept. 30, because of the Opening Night Reception AND new workshops being offered that day. More on that below. 

This year, the festival expands to offer more of what you love about "LA" (that's lower Alabama, in case you didn't know) by becoming a "birding & nature festival!" We will still offer your favorite expertly guided birding trips to prime spots along the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, but we are adding 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. This year's expanded Alabama Coastal BirdFest features 15 brand new trips and adventures. Registration is set to open August 15, but you can preview the trips, evening events and workshops here now.

This year's poster photographer is Patsy Russo, who also happens to be an expert birding guide and the volunteer guide coordinator for BirdFest! Patsy's work will be featured in the 2015 "Nature Through Our Lenses" presentation, part of the Welcome Reception at 5 Rivers on Wednesday, Sept. 30.
