ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS

For thirteen years Friends of the Locust Fork River has sponsored this environmental education opportunity for Blount County children in grades three to six. Held at King's /Stevens Bend on the banks of the beautiful Locust Fork river, it’s gotten bigger and better every time – with more activity stations, more children and parents, more learning, and more fun. Certified canoe instruction, get-wet ecology, snakes, are just a few of the highlights. There will be fun and learning for children and adults. Partners in providing environmental activities include Birmingham Canoe Club, Alabama River Alliance, McDowell Environmental Center, and more.

VOLUNTEERS

Please join us for this annual, award-winning and fun day of watershed awareness/education for kids. Actually, as usually happens at successful events like this, parents and presenters — everybody — learn some really cool stuff. We can use all sorts of volunteers, from people to park cars, to “shepherds” for each of the kid groups, to educators to present hands-on activities or maybe lunchtime entertainment.
