Nature Center and Programs

 

Gulf State Park Nature Center is a living museum of plants and animals that are native to the Gulf Coast region.  It is our goal to inspire people to care for the environment by expanding their knowledge of the state’s natural resources through experiences that lead them to understand their connection to the natural world.

To see our weekly schedule CLICK HERE

 

               

 

We offer many exciting and worthwhile programs.  Our weekly programs include guided nature walks, beach walks, pier walks, and a nature time.  Through these educational programs, we offer a multitude of learning opportunities for children and adults about Alabama’s Gulf Coast.

 
     
 
     

Hours

Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

 

Additionally, GSP Nature Center works closely with the United States Fish & Wildlife Service to protect Alabama’s sea turtles through the volunteer program known as Share the Beach.  For more details about this program, click here

 

The Nature Center and its facilities are open to the public upon a $1 per vehicle fee to enter the campground.
