Southeastern Outings Waterfowl Viewing Trip in the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge

The Refuge has the largest concentration of wintering cranes, geese and ducks in the entire state of Alabama!  You don’t need to be a bird watcher to enjoy this outing!  Experienced birders leading the trip will share their knowledge with all.

This 35,000-acre refuge attracts thousands of wintering waterfowl each year.  WNWR is comprised of diverse habitat types including bottomland hardwoods, wetlands, pine uplands, shoreline or riparian woodlands, agricultural fields, and backwater embayments.  These habitats provide excellent feeding, resting, and roosting sites for wintering waterfowl, white pelicans, sandhill cranes and a few endangered whooping cranes as well as nesting sites for migratory songbirds and many species of resident wildlife.

We are highly privileged to have as our guide Dwight Cooley, the retired Refuge Manager.  Dwight will take us on refuge roads behind locked gates as we drive to various bays and sloughs where you can easily see hundreds of ducks and geese in large numbers.  We’ll also see many other types of birds including, hopefully, bald eagles.  We’ll even see a huge flock of sandhill cranes which winter at the refuge each year.  This winter the Refuge expects to be hosting approximately 22,000 sandhill cranes and about 20 endangered whooping cranes.  The gated roads are closed to the public but will be open to our group.

Please bring binoculars, a birding field guide and a spotting telescope with you if you have them.  The leader and Dan Frederick will each bring a spotting scope which they will share with participants.

This outing is rated easy, as there is very little walking involved, and we won’t be climbing any hills or walking through thick brush.  Please dress for the weather.  The wind at the refuge can be biting, blowing across open water on cold days.

Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 10 and over who can remain quiet for extended periods of time (so as to not disturb the birds and bird watchers) are welcome.

Note-To view photos of what we will see on this trip, please click on this link:

Please be sure to click on the link and view the photographs.

Possible optional dinner after the birding trip depending on what time we finish bird watching.

Reservations Required: If you wish to participate in this outing, you are required to call Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or email your reservation to southeasternoutings@gmail.com by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 26, 2023.  When you contact Dan, please be sure you leave your first and last name and either your phone number or email address.  If you are bringing guest(s), please be sure to give Dan the first and last names of each of them.

This outing is limited to 5 motor vehicles.  Dwight Cooley, the retired Refuge Manager and our outing leader, has very kindly reserved a 10-person refuge van to be one of those vehicles.  Therefore, we are currently allowing a total of 25 Southeastern Outings people in order to comply with Refuge regulations.  We hope the limitation will not prove to be a problem.

If you want to come on this outing and you have a vehicle which can comfortably hold more than four people and you are willing to use your vehicle to transport participants into the Refuge with us, please advise Dan Frederick immediately.  Your assistance in this instance will permit us to accommodate more people on our trip than the 25 maximum number of SEO people currently imposed.

Since the Refuge’s limitation is five vehicles, you must be willing to ride in a full car or vanload of people in order to be eligible to come on this trip.  If you are unwilling to carpool with other people during this outing, please do not register to participate in this event.

People who want to register to participate after the limit is reached will be placed on a waiting list.

At a later date leader will advise meeting time and place only to those who have signed up for this trip. 

We look forward to seeing many of you on January 28.

Info: Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or southeasternoutings@gmail.com

Donté K. Hayes’ work is inspired by researching traditional African heirlooms, initiation rites of birth, adulthood, marriage, eldership, and ancestry which are essential to all human growth and speaks to the greater African diaspora. The repeated texture and patterns on the surface of his sculptures imbue a visual language of memory, ritual, comfort and a sense of familiarity to viewers. Hayes’ sculptures are vessels that are turned upside down, symbolizing the crazy world we live in.

Known as the “keeper of the images,” Kwame Brathwaite deployed his photography
from the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s as an agent of social change. Born

in Brooklyn to a Caribbean American family and raised in the Bronx, Brathwaite

traces his artistic and political sensibilities to his youth. After seeing the horrific

images of Emmett Till published in Jet magazine in 1955, Brathwaite and his

brother Elombe Brath turned to art and political activism, absorbing the ideas of

the Jamaican-born activist Marcus Garvey, who promoted a Pan-Africanist vision

for black economic liberation and freedom.

This exhibition is organized by Aperture, New York and Kwame S. Brathwaite. It is curated by Kwame S. Brathwaite and Michael Famighetti.

The exhibition Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and the

accompanying Aperture publication are made possible, in part, by generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles.

Spotted salamanders come out only once a year, on a warm rainy night. The rest of the year, they live in the ground in burrows. They live in a rich forest habitat most of their lives, but need a wetland pool to mate and breed in.

If the weather is good, there will be a hike to the salamander ponds on south Lakeshore Drive. There will also be tours of the high school's rain garden (weather permitting). Different groups will be on hand to educate guests about environmental awareness and protection, focusing on the salamanders. The event features live music, as well as refreshments.

Join us for Vibes & Virtues, a one-of-a-kind game night that combines art, conversation, and prizes! This event will also serve as a fundraiser for The Black Cherry Tree Project, a community arts project working to consider the possibility of racial reconciliation in Birmingham, Alabama by working with local artists to create commemorative works of art in honor of the 33 documented lynching victims of Jefferson County and planting of black cherry tree saplings in honor of each victim in publicly accessible locations in fall of 2023.

This Vibes & Virtues event will be the first since the pandemic, and also serve as a space for artists interested in being a part of the next cohort of commissioned Black Cherry Tree Project artists to learn more about the project, sign up and connect with likeminds over a one-of-a kind experience. Join in on the thought-provoking conversation, win prizes donated by local businesses, and support the next phase of The Black Cherry Tree Project.

While enjoying the game night, be sure to try one of our signature cocktails, Philosopher's Punch and The Thinker.

Southeastern Outings Waterfowl Viewing Trip in the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge

[more+]

The Refuge has the largest concentration of wintering cranes, geese and ducks in the entire state of Alabama!  You don’t need to be a bird watcher to enjoy this outing!  Experienced birders leading the trip will share their knowledge with all.

This 35,000-acre refuge attracts thousands of wintering waterfowl each year.  WNWR is comprised of diverse habitat types including bottomland hardwoods, wetlands, pine uplands, shoreline or riparian woodlands, agricultural fields, and backwater embayments.  These habitats provide excellent feeding, resting, and roosting sites for wintering waterfowl, white pelicans, sandhill cranes and a few endangered whooping cranes as well as nesting sites for migratory songbirds and many species of resident wildlife.

We are highly privileged to have as our guide Dwight Cooley, the retired Refuge Manager.  Dwight will take us on refuge roads behind locked gates as we drive to various bays and sloughs where you can easily see hundreds of ducks and geese in large numbers.  We’ll also see many other types of birds including, hopefully, bald eagles.  We’ll even see a huge flock of sandhill cranes which winter at the refuge each year.  This winter the Refuge expects to be hosting approximately 22,000 sandhill cranes and about 20 endangered whooping cranes.  The gated roads are closed to the public but will be open to our group.

Please bring binoculars, a birding field guide and a spotting telescope with you if you have them.  The leader and Dan Frederick will each bring a spotting scope which they will share with participants.

This outing is rated easy, as there is very little walking involved, and we won’t be climbing any hills or walking through thick brush.  Please dress for the weather.  The wind at the refuge can be biting, blowing across open water on cold days.

Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 10 and over who can remain quiet for extended periods of time (so as to not disturb the birds and bird watchers) are welcome.

Note-To view photos of what we will see on this trip, please click on this link:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/SvhqhVBWlcJX5qBL2

Please be sure to click on the link and view the photographs.

Possible optional dinner after the birding trip depending on what time we finish bird watching.

Reservations Required: If you wish to participate in this outing, you are required to call Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or email your reservation to southeasternoutings@gmail.com by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 26, 2023.  When you contact Dan, please be sure you leave your first and last name and either your phone number or email address.  If you are bringing guest(s), please be sure to give Dan the first and last names of each of them.

This outing is limited to 5 motor vehicles.  Dwight Cooley, the retired Refuge Manager and our outing leader, has very kindly reserved a 10-person refuge van to be one of those vehicles.  Therefore, we are currently allowing a total of 25 Southeastern Outings people in order to comply with Refuge regulations.  We hope the limitation will not prove to be a problem.

If you want to come on this outing and you have a vehicle which can comfortably hold more than four people and you are willing to use your vehicle to transport participants into the Refuge with us, please advise Dan Frederick immediately.  Your assistance in this instance will permit us to accommodate more people on our trip than the 25 maximum number of SEO people currently imposed.

Since the Refuge’s limitation is five vehicles, you must be willing to ride in a full car or vanload of people in order to be eligible to come on this trip.  If you are unwilling to carpool with other people during this outing, please do not register to participate in this event.

People who want to register to participate after the limit is reached will be placed on a waiting list.

At a later date leader will advise meeting time and place only to those who have signed up for this trip. 

We look forward to seeing many of you on January 28.

Info: Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or southeasternoutings@gmail.com

Donté K. Hayes’ work is inspired by researching traditional African heirlooms, initiation rites of birth, adulthood, marriage, eldership, and ancestry which are essential to all human growth and speaks to the greater African diaspora. The repeated texture and patterns on the surface of his sculptures imbue a visual language of memory, ritual, comfort and a sense of familiarity to viewers. Hayes’ sculptures are vessels that are turned upside down, symbolizing the crazy world we live in.

Known as the “keeper of the images,” Kwame Brathwaite deployed his photography
from the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s as an agent of social change. Born

in Brooklyn to a Caribbean American family and raised in the Bronx, Brathwaite

traces his artistic and political sensibilities to his youth. After seeing the horrific

images of Emmett Till published in Jet magazine in 1955, Brathwaite and his

brother Elombe Brath turned to art and political activism, absorbing the ideas of

the Jamaican-born activist Marcus Garvey, who promoted a Pan-Africanist vision

for black economic liberation and freedom.

This exhibition is organized by Aperture, New York and Kwame S. Brathwaite. It is curated by Kwame S. Brathwaite and Michael Famighetti.

The exhibition Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and the

accompanying Aperture publication are made possible, in part, by generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles.

Spotted salamanders come out only once a year, on a warm rainy night. The rest of the year, they live in the ground in burrows. They live in a rich forest habitat most of their lives, but need a wetland pool to mate and breed in.

If the weather is good, there will be a hike to the salamander ponds on south Lakeshore Drive. There will also be tours of the high school's rain garden (weather permitting). Different groups will be on hand to educate guests about environmental awareness and protection, focusing on the salamanders. The event features live music, as well as refreshments.

Join us for Vibes & Virtues, a one-of-a-kind game night that combines art, conversation, and prizes! This event will also serve as a fundraiser for The Black Cherry Tree Project, a community arts project working to consider the possibility of racial reconciliation in Birmingham, Alabama by working with local artists to create commemorative works of art in honor of the 33 documented lynching victims of Jefferson County and planting of black cherry tree saplings in honor of each victim in publicly accessible locations in fall of 2023.

This Vibes & Virtues event will be the first since the pandemic, and also serve as a space for artists interested in being a part of the next cohort of commissioned Black Cherry Tree Project artists to learn more about the project, sign up and connect with likeminds over a one-of-a kind experience. Join in on the thought-provoking conversation, win prizes donated by local businesses, and support the next phase of The Black Cherry Tree Project.

While enjoying the game night, be sure to try one of our signature cocktails, Philosopher's Punch and The Thinker.

Don't miss out on this unique event, grab your tickets now and join us on January 28th!
