The outdoor adventure and learning site, Trek Birmingham, has added another destination to its growing list. The latest entry, a comprehensive look at Red Mountain Park, covers everything from the park's geology to its archaeology, its biology and its history. This impressive collection of information, photographs, maps and charts was put together by Birmingham-Southern College faculty members R. Scot Duncan and Francesca Gross.
It joins 12 other entries, including Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, Ruffner Mountain, the Zoo, Sloss Furnaces and Vulcan Park.
This isn't just your standard how-to-get-there info. It's practically a lesson plan for a multi-discipline course.
If you study up on Trek Birmingham before a visit, you could really impress your fellow visitors with your knowledge of the rocks, flora and fauna wherever you choose to go.
