Birding 101 Hike

Have you always wanted to learn more of the basics of bird identification? Well the Birding Hike 101 is the way to do it! Birding is an excellent way to explore and connect to nature in a new and different way. It is a great skill, a fun activity, and easy to learn. Join Jacksonville State University’s Grover Brown for an early morning hike on the boardwalk and along some of the trails around Azalea Cascade. There are approximately 430 species of birds that call Alabama home, so we hope to see some of our feathered friends and learn how to identify them based on sight and sound. Discover how to use current technology to become a better birder. Prior birding experience is not necessary, just have your eyes and ears ready for lots of bird activity! Feel free to bring binoculars. DeSoto State Park-Fort Payne, Alabama. Meet at the Talmadge Butler Boardwalk Trail on County Road 89: Free, no pre-registration required. Great for all ages!
