Thurs. 4/21. 7:00pm. Monthly meeting. “A Wild Flower called Dandelion” Dr. Ellen McLaughlin, Professor Emeritus, Samford University, St. Francis Parish, Mulvoy Building, 811 Fifth Avenue, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401.
Sat.-Sun 4/23-24. ”Cheaha State Park Hike and Campout” Let's go to the "Great High Place"- as it is known to the Cherokee Nation. Alabama's highest point and surroundings have special meaning to me also, as it was one of my first hikes with the Sierra Club. I've been back many times since, but I do not remember ever having gone to Cheaha in late April. We should be able to see some unique wildflowers, maybe some migrant warblers and other birds, and definitely some unique old-growth forests and massive sandstone boulders and cliffs. Those who wish to camp please contact the park by going to www.alapark.com or by calling 1-800-ALA-PARK to make reservations. Day-use only fees are $5 per person for ages 12-61; $2 per person for seniors age 62+ and children 6-11 years. Children under 5 are free. If you are not camping out at the park and plan to hike, please meet on Saturday, April 23 at 7:30 a.m. at the old Books-A-Million lot. Pack a lunch, water, sturdy shoes, walking stick, etc. The hike will be approximately 6 miles and is moderately strenuous. Those who are day hiking only should expect to arrive back in Tuscaloosa sometime after 7:00 p.m.
Fri. 5/6-Sun. 5/8. Campout weekend at Desoto State Park. Join us for a weekend of fun in the great outdoors in beautiful northeast Alabama.
