Enjoy. Value. Protect.
Wild Alabama works to protect, promote, and educate about Alabama’s National Forests and The Wilderness areas within them, Sipsey, Cheaha, and Dugger Mountain.
We are Protecting Forests for Life!
It wouldn’t be summer at Wild Alabama without our Wild Wednesday hike series! Each Wednesday beginning the last week in June through the first week in August, we host nature hikes for kids and families to the coolest, wettest creeks and canyons of northwest Alabama’s Bankhead National Forest!
Wild Wednesday hikes provide kids and adults with opportunities to enjoy our public lands together. At Wild Alabama, we believe that protecting our public lands starts with love, and part of loving a place is spending quality time there!
Our hikes teach children and adults about the wonders of nature in our magnificent forest, and Leave No Trace principles. They introduce families to the Bankhead’s stunning wild places, and how to safely enjoy them on their own.
The goal of the Wild Wednesday hike series is to inspire individuals to enjoy, value, and protect the amazing natural and cultural history of their public lands. The more we understand, value, and cherish these wild places, the harder we will fight to protect them!
