TrekBirmingham and Shades Creek
The latest addition is a behind the scenes tour of the Shades Creek Greenway, the walking and biking train the runs along the creek banks and Lakeshore Parkway in Homewood.
As always, the TrekBirmingham exploration goes below the surface we see as we amble along, delving deeper to explain the geology, ecology, and history of your everyday surroundings. Such as:
Where was the lake that gave Lakeshore Parkway its name?
How to wade the creek and find hog suckers, stonerollers, and shiners.
And for more options and other destinations check out the TrekBirmingham homepage.
