Guided Nature Tours


Spring is here! Today’s guided nature tour will be the greenest yet in 2018. Come and see how the woods have changed now that warmer weather has arrived. We will still see signs left behind by winter’s touch and discover the ways that Russell Forest life thrives in the spring season. We never know what we’ll find, but this outdoor classroom never disappoints! An energetic hike will offer both learning and exercise. Appropriate for participants ages 5 – 105.


ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY! There is a $10 fee for this program.

Please contact our Naturalist at 256-496-2710 to inquire and to register.


For all Guided Nature Tours: It is recommended that you have a moderate fitness level and are able to stand or walk for at least two hours. Walking pace will be relaxed with frequent stops. Comfortable, seasonally appropriate clothing and shoes are recommended. You may want to bring bottled water, sunscreen and insect repellent. Binoculars and cameras are welcome.
