High School Summer Hike

July 16 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

During our High School Summer Hike Series, we’ll explore biological oddities around us in North Alabama! Through this experience, teens can follow some of our natural world’s most bizarre and surreal aspects and how this oddness reflects its ecological uniqueness. How do magnolias pollinate if they existed before bees? How did the possum end up the only North American marsupial? Do mushrooms eat EVERYTHING when they die? We’ll reveal more questions than we answer and tear into local examples of weirdness at work.  Sign up for any one event or come to all of them!

Dates & Location:

July 9, 11, 16, 18 at 9:30am-12:00pm at Green Mountain Nature Preserve
July 23 at 6:30-9:00pm for a sunset hike at Blevins Gap Nature Preserve

What to Bring: We recommend closed toe shoes, long pants, bug spray, sunscreen, and water.
