Camp Fletcher Bio Blitz with Cahaba River Society
April 29 - April 30
The BioBlitz is a great way to excite kids about science, learn about biodiversity, discover how you can help protect our natural world, and discover Camp Fletcher as a summer camp opportunity for diverse youth.
Camp Fletcher is a wooded preserve and nature retreat founded in 1926 by Alabama’s first African-American registered nurse, Mrs. Pauline Bray Fletcher, as a summer camp and health retreat for African-American women and children. It is notable that Nurse Fletcher amassed 280 acres of biodiverse, old growth forest and held onto it through a time period when Black land ownership was undermined.
