Tour of Oakmulgee Forest Area. Join us for an easy trip to one of Alabama’s lesser known national forests. Just south of Tuscaloosa is the Talladega National Forest (Oakmulgee District). We plan to visit several sites: one that has a Bald Eagle nest, possible eagles nesting; one that has Red-cockaded Woodpecker nest trees; one that possesses a Longleaf Pine which is over 400 years old! The walks will be short and not strenuous. Plan to have lunch at a restaurant in Brent, AL. Camping option at Payne Lake Recreation Area. Meet at the old Books-a-Million lot at 9:00a.m. ETA back in Tuscaloosa approximately 3:00p.m.
