Our mission: To increase our community's awareness of the natural world and the need for its preservation through education and the active enjoyment of birds and other wildlife.

ANNUAL PICNIC - May 15, 2014:  Our final meeting of the year isn't a meeting at all!  It’s a wonderful picnic at Eastham Thomason Park.  Our annual picnic will be on Thursday, May 15 at 6:00 pm at Eastham Thomason Park on 7th Avenue in Huntsville. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided, but all the appropriate picnic side dishes, salads and desserts are requested.  Don't forget to bring a lawn chair and insect repellent...they may be in full force by then!


Construction of the Jack Prouty Memorial Bird Blind is almost complete!  Our construction manager, James Shelley and his students at Gulf Coast Trades Center built most of the blind at the Center and last week they transported the sections to Huntsville State Park for assembly.  In just a few days, the project will be completed and we will make plans for a formal dedication.  Many thanks to everyone who donated their time, talents, materials and money to this project.
