Project “ALL ABOUT THE BIRDS” is an ongoing collaboration between the “Town of Dauphin Island” and “Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuaries“  that protects plots of wildflowers, necessary food for migrating birds. This project began several years ago in DIBS member Don McKee’s yard and was very successful in attracting Painted Buntings and other migrants. it was adopted the next year by the Town and DIBS. Each year, additional streets have been added to protect even more areas. Mowing will resume in early May. Many thanks once again to Mayor, Jeff Collier and the Town of Dauphin Island for their continued support. If you live on Dauphin Island and would like a sign placed in your yard to participate contact Don or Dena McKee at 861-BIRD.

  • NOTICE FLOOD INSURANCE UPDATE : The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted a series of virtual tour audits in early 2021 as part of the town’s administration of the Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance. As a result, some 200+ structures were flagged by FEMA to have possible and/or potential violations. Town staff are currently in the process of contacting property owners, providing on-site inspections, and assisting individuals to achieve full compliance as necessary. Every effort will be made to contact property owners in advance of any required site visits. Please contact the Building Inspection Dept. at 251-861-5525 x222 for additional information. Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work to assist FEMA with this important process to maintain flood insurance availability for our island community. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time.
