Birding Field Trip at Opelika Wood Duck Heritage Preserve
January 24, 2020 @ 10:54 pm
The Alabama Audubon is embarking on a birding field trip to two nature preserves in Auburn and Opelika. Attendees first will visit the Opelika Wood Duck Heritage Preserve, a 73-acre nutrient-rich intentional wetland owned by the city of Opelika. After lunch, participants will travel to Auburn’s Kreher Preserve and Nature Center where they will hear a short lecture from Alabama Audubon’s expert birders and tips on active birding. After the lecture, smaller groups will go into the forest to listen and watch for permanent avian residents, as well as those migrating through. This event is free and open to the public. Remember to bring plenty of water and snacks, a full tank of gas, insect repellent, rain gear, sunblock, and seasonally appropriate attire
