About the Bash

The 11th Annual Bald Eagle Bash–the Alabama Gulf Coast’s Party for Preservation–is Saturday, April 25, 2020, at the Tonsmeire Weeks Bay Resource Center. This signature event for the Weeks Bay Foundation has earned a reputation for delivering great food, great music, and a great time, all on the edges of beautiful Weeks Bay. The “Bash” includes fresh Gulf shrimp prepared by the area’s best chefs and restaurants, a low country shrimp boil, delectable desserts by area bakers, beer from Fairhope Brewing Company, and a great selection of wine. This year’s musical entertainment will feature the incredible The Underhill Family Orchestra AND The Marlow Boys!

Bald Eagle Bash is also the Foundation’s principal fund raiser, and provides revenue for land, water, and wildlife protection, along with education and outreach programs. Our sponsors receive widespread marketing and PR exposure, plus the opportunity to mingle with 1,200-plus guests at the ”Bash”.

About the Weeks Bay Foundation

We are a nationally-accredited land trust working to save the land, water, wildlife, and critical habitats of coastal Alabama, while providing environmental education and outreach. The Weeks Bay Foundation was incorporated in 1990 as a non-profit organization to support the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in its efforts to conserve the pristine coastal area of Baldwin County. The Foundation, with the support of over 550 members, generous donors and event sponsors, has protected more than 7,000 acres along the waters’ edges within Baldwin and Mobile counties. This is done through conservation easements, land donations, and land purchases. The land we protect can never be developed, and will remain forever wild.
