Wild Alabama BioBlitz at Natural Bridge!

April 6, 10:00am – 3:00pm

What is a BioBlitz? A bioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. Come with iNaturalist app already on your phone and help to document all the amazing living things that are in the canyons around Natural Bridge. Scientists from around the state will be conducting research on the location all weekend.  Here is your opportunity to do “real science” with them as you can help observe and contribute to this fun, informative community science experience!

More about Natural Bridge:
Natural Bridge Park in Winston County features a 148-foot sandstone bridge that towers 60 feet above winding pathways, and it’s the longest natural bridge east of the Rockies. It’s definitely a majestic sight to see. The park has a picnic area perfect for bringing a lunch to eat before or after you hike the approximately 2 mile trail through the park. At the back of the park is a small waterfall that is refreshing to listen to, and there is a stream that runs throughout the park. During the spring, you’ll find all kinds of wildflowers, and in the fall you’ll see the vibrant fall foliage. Under the natural bridge at Natural Bridge Park is s cave-like bluff that you can walk around in. This natural bridge formation dates back to two million years ago, and it is known that the Creek Indians lived in the area. They probably used this cave-like formation as shelter from the elements. Don’t miss the Indian face that’s etched by nature in the large rock! The park also offers a great gift shop that has local products as well as products from all over the US. Natural Bridge Park is open daily from 8am to sunset, year round.
