Posted

The City of Orange Beach’s Continuing Excellence Program released the winter and spring 2021 schedule and it is packed with opportunities. The program offers a variety of free workshops, classes and events for adults in the community. The offerings vary from creative writing and beginner Portuguese to salsa and line dancing.

The BioBlitz workshop is offered every second Saturday of the month. Participants explore the natural wonders of Orange Beach and use the iNaturalist app to take photos of plants, insects and animals and collect data. Researchers use the data collected in the app to identify the flora and fauna in the local area. The provided data is used for a variety of research projects as well.
