Kaiser Realty, Inc. joins forces to aid in the 2012 Coastal CleanupOn September 15th, the Kaiser Realty team joined forces with more than 60,000 other beach lovers to help keep the white sand beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast clean and beautiful during the 2012 Coastal Cleanup. Working in Orange Beach, team members set off from the Nordic Villas community and worked their way to the beautifully gated subdivision of Beachside Romar. Picking up trash and removing relics of vacations passed from the approximately 1 mile stretch of beach, the Kaiser team was able to grab items such as beach chairs, toys and other unwanted goods that had accumulated along the stretch of sandy coastline.

The Coastal Cleanup continues to be a strong, community focused event aimed at maintaining the beaches following the busy summer season. This particular stretch of beach is very special to the Kaiser Realty team because hundreds of families enjoy this very area each and every year with stays in both the Nordic Villas and the Beachside Romar subdivisions.

NOAA Fisheries Service extends red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico through July 16

GULF SHORES AND ORANGE BEACH, ALA. – 7/2/2012 - Landing massive red snappers will now be possible for families visiting the Alabama Gulf Coast in mid-July thanks to NOAA Fisheries Service’s extension of the season through July 16. NOAA evaluated the first 26 days of the 2012 recreational red snapper fishing season and determined that extended severe weather, including Tropical Storm Debby, resulted in numerous lost fishing days for the north-central Gulf of Mexico where a substantial portion of this harvest occurs.

“These extra six days are an opportunity for our guests to enjoy one of the world’s best red snapper fisheries,” said Herb Malone, president/CEO of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism (CVB). “Adding to the options for our families is the opening of grouper season on July 1 alongside many other ongoing seasons. Our state boasts the nation’s largest artificial reef program just off our shores, and the smiles of charter boat guests returning to dock show the evidence of our bountiful fishery and the lifelong memories created.”

Echoing similar thoughts, Tom Steber, president of the Orange Beach Fishing Association said that “this extension will help local captains re-coop the June days lost to weather, and they are thrilled to have six more days to show guests how many hungry red snapper are in our Gulf waters. Then, take the freshly caught snapper and other fish to the local restaurants with hook-and-cook menu options and put an exclamation mark on an excellent Orange Beach fishing trip.”

When the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill occurred, citizens along the Gulf Coast immediately began to wonder how the event would forever change their lives. As it became more and more apparent the oil would indeed reach the sugar white sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, city officials began to brainstorm about how to handle the situation to ensure our cleanup process could be expeditious and carried out diligently.

Kaiser Realty, Inc. Director of Sales / Gulf Shores City Councilman, Steve Jones, decided that he needed to do what he could to preserve the integrity of the area as well as provide a service to beach lovers nationwide. Two days after the first remnants began reaching the shores of the Alabama Gulf Coast, in June of 2010, Jones grabbed his camera and set [Read more...]

In 1967, the Bald Eagle was placed on the endangered species list in an effort to re-build the population and keep our nation’s most iconic flying species around for generations of American’s to come. For thirty years, the education regarding conservation grew into a nationwide effort to help unify environmental efforts and bring back the Bald Eagle to fruition. Happily, in 2007, the eagle was removed from the endangered list and can once again be seen flying around Baldwin County!

Successful conservation efforts such as this are what spurned the birth of the “Bald Eagle Bash,” a fundraiser to benefit the Weeks Bay Foundation and Weeks Bay Reserve, hosted annually in Fairhope. Being held on Saturday, June 2nd at the [Read more...]

GULF SHORES AND ORANGE BEACH, ALA. – Are you looking for ways to spend more time outside exploring the Alabama Gulf Coast and help science while doing it? Scientists are looking to gather snapshots of local birding populations all across the U.S. and Canada and need volunteers to count these feathered friends during the Great Backyard Bird Count.

“This project is a fun way to learn about the birds of coastal Alabama while being part of a very important study that helps with bird conservation efforts,” said Joanne McDonough of the Nature Tourism Initiative. “You can even go beyond the backyard and explore the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail that spans two counties and is enhanced by directional and interpretive signage, offering enthusiasts endless opportunities to count birds and explore their habitats.”

The Alabama Coastal Birding Trail is a series of loops winding through Mobile and Baldwin Counties. Event participants can also checkout more habitats in the area including the Gulf State Park and the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.

Tracking begins on Friday, Feb. 17 and lasts until Monday, Feb. 20. No registration is required for the event and it is open to all ages. Participants are asked to simply watch birds wherever they choose for 15 minutes and document the species at www.birdcount.org. Helpful charts and other tools are also available on the website.

Last year, the Great Backyard Bird Count had great success with participants submitting over 92,000 lists and 11 states making new checklists records. More than 11.4 million birds were observed, and 596 species were identified.

To learn more about the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, visit www.alabamacoastalbirdingtrail.com. Additional information on the Great Backyard Bird Count can be found at www.birdsource.org/gbbc.
