Red Mountain Park Hike This Sunday In Search of the Longleaf

Come out to Red Mountain Park at 2 p.m. Sunday for a Free Guided Nature Hike This Sunday!

(If it is pouring rain, we might have to cancel, but we go if it is just a drizzle).

This hike is going to be guided by Scot Duncan, a Birmingham-Southern professor and author of Southern Wonder: Alabama's Surprising Biodiversity. He is also a principal author of the TrekBirmingham website, which offers geological, biological, and cultural information about various outdoor destinations in the Birmingham area.

Duncan is going be guiding us on a quest to find the remnant populations of longleaf pine on the Red Mountain ridges. The story of the longleaf, Alabama's state tree, is a fascinating one, well told and illustrated in Longleaf, Far as the Eye Can See: A New Vision of North American's Richest Forest.

I'll be there to introduce Duncan, sell and sign books, and recommend hikes on which you can find longleaf.
