Bird identification workshop by sight and sound: Bird watching is not a new hobby, but it is a hobby that is growing in popularity. In the late 1800s, birds were of little interest to most people. In the early 1900s, things started to change with the formation of bird clubs. Bird watching, also known as bird watching, is popular because it is not difficult to get started. All you need is a pair of binoculars and a field guide or online app that will help you identify birds in your area.

You can start your birding adventure in your backyard and then branch out as your confidence grows. The Alabama Co-op Extension System is here to help build your self-confidence!

Property lines, fences and the law: Property lines define the points where your land begins and ends. Having a good understanding of your property lines is an important part of being a landowner. Knowing where your property begins and ends can avoid potential inconvenience or legal disputes with your neighbors.

If you are unsure of how to prevent encroachment on your property or how far from the property line you can build or install a fence, we’re here to help. Join us for this valuable and free online webinar on May 20 at 12 p.m. ET.
