Birmingham Audubon Mountain Workshop

Mentone, Alabama
Thursday, May 07, 2015
May 7 - 10, 2015,  marks the 38th annual Birmingham Audubon Mountain Workshop.  We hope you will join us as we explore the natural sciences of Alabama's Southwestern Appalachians region and enjoy all the other  activities associated with this event.  We invite you to look over the schedule, the faculty biographies and the course descriptions to get a better understanding of why the Birmingham Audubon Mountain Workshop has attracted nature lovers for generations.

​Class​ topics ​may include ​animal ​ecology, ​beginning ​and ​advanced ​bird ​identification, botany, ​stream ​biology, ​mammals, ​insects, ​reptiles ​and ​amphibians, ​geology ​and ​fossils, ​canoeing, ​mountain ​crafts, ​and ​many ​more. ​Classes ​take ​place ​on ​the ​campus ​of ​Alpine ​Camp ​and ​around ​Mentone, ​an ​old ​Alabama ​resort ​area ​featuring ​rustic ​cabins ​and ​lodges, ​broad ​mountain ​vistas ​and ​clear ​streams. ​Little ​River ​flows for ​almost its entirety atop ​Lookout ​Mountain carving the Little River Canyon on the way to ​the ​Coosa ​River ​Valley. The Little River Canyon is ​the ​deepest ​canyon ​east ​of ​the ​Mississippi. ​Alpine ​Camp ​is ​situated ​directly ​on the West Fork of the ​Little ​River.


The Young Naturalist Program is a curriculum based program for children ages 5 to 12.  The Young Naturalist courses and activities are taught and supervised by our academic adult faculty along with Birmingham Audubon’s teaching naturalist staff.  Young Naturalists love this program that includes lots of hands on activities and extensive science and nature based learning. An adult must be responsible for Young Naturalists  during non program hours.
