For the January Nature Program, we will be hosting Mr. Mark Bailey, who has studied a variety of threatened and endangered species in the southeastern U.S. and has extensive experience in conservation land management. Mr. Bailey will discuss his work with Red-cockaded Woodpeckers in Alabama, an endangered species that requires healthy stands of mature pine forests for nesting. Red-cockaded Woodpeckers are the only woodpecker species that excavate their nest cavities in living trees rather than dead snags. Mr. Bailey is one of the authors of the recent book, “Turtles of Alabama”, and copies will be
available for purchase and signing.
The public is welcome to attend. Please come early for refreshments and conversation. Fellowship and snack time begins at 6:30 p.m.
