2020 has brought major challenges to our normal ways of life and how we interact with each other and the rest of the world. During this time of COVID-19, we are offering virtual learning webinars on a myriad of topics related to outdoor education. Here are just a few of the topics we can cover in a Zoom session with one of our dedicated staff members or volunteers.
Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop
Wilderness 101 (What is capital "W" wilderness)
Map reading & interpretation (not a map & compass class)
Ecosystem services, what benefits to healthy forests provide?
Rivers of Alabama
Ten Hiking Essentials
If any of this interests you, contact us and we can get you set up. These are free and there must be at least two people on the call. This is a perfect opportunity for families, home-school groups or any small unit of people looking for extended learning.
Tuesday, January 11, 2022. In partnership with the Bankhead National Forest, Wild Alabama sponsored a learning opportunity about wild pigs in the Forest and Sipsey Wilderness. Later this month, the Forest Service will begin using aggressive tactics to remove wild pigs from the Sipsey. When watching this, please note that during the 11:30-21:25 minute time period, we were watching the Southern Exposure film, "Invasive in Alabama". You may fast forward through that section, but please do watch the film by clicking on the links provided!
