Explore Cypress Swamps of the Lower Cahaba
Saturday, Oct 10, 8:00 AM
Fall is a great time to visit wetlands, because normally the temperatures are good, bugs are few, and drier though still wet conditions allow you to keep your feet dry on the trails. Perry Lakes Park on the Lower Cahaba River offers such an opportunity. Join us Saturday, October 10. Participants will get a chance to see Spanish moss-draped Bald Cypress Swamps which look like they are right out of Louisiana, but are only about an hour from Birmingham. The site includes numerous trails around the swamps which lead to the largest gravel beach on the Cahaba River as well as a one-hundred foot observation tower. Families and individuals are welcome.
Wear clothes appropriate for trails, and bring insect repellent just in case. If you want to stay past lunchtime, bring a sack lunch. Tables and bathroom facilities are available onsite. We will carpool from the Church to Perry Lakes Park. You should be headed back to Birmingham between noon and 2:00 PM.
This trip is part of the "Exploring Wild Alabama Trip Series" sponsored by Shades Crest Baptist Church.
