Connecting with Birds and Nature Tours, LLC.
Connecting with Birds and Nature Tours, LLC. was started with the desire to share with birders and naturalist the outdoors on private property. The property consists of diverse areas including pasture, bottomland hardwood, and a creek. It is an active award-winning Black Angus cattle farm which has been in the Joe family for over 3 generations. It sits on 200 acres of family property in Newbern, Alabama, the heart of the Black Belt. Visitors have the option of being led on an 18 ft hay ride trailer or walk the 6 plus miles of trials.
In addition to outdoor activities, there will also be the development of agritourism as a revenue stream to diversify the economic opportunities. This leads to creation of jobs, regional economic development, self-sustainability, and support for local landowners, and facilitate further community development in historically underserved area.
This focus on the outdoors via birding and nature walks will expand the holistic health practices that are becoming part of the local fabric through ergotherapy or the use of agricultural settings for treatment and rehabilitation.
