 Thursday, November 20                       2:00 p.m.          Joe Wheeler State Park Lodge            

“These meetings will allow people interested in the renovation plans for Alabama’s state parks to see what is planned for each of the parks,” said M. Barnett Lawley, Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources. “They will have the opportunity to ask questions of us, and to make comments about the plans.”
