Campfire Talk: Geologic History of Little River

Join us for a fun campfire talk in the Great Outdoors! Campfire Talks are a series of educational & entertaining programs located outside in DeSoto State Park. Campfire programs are held many Friday & Saturday evening (June –October) in our large campfire ring inside the improved campground. Talks are for all ages, & open to everyone!

The Little River area of Lookout Mountain is extraordinary in both its geology and biology. As the river winds its course atop the mountain it creates a mosaic of microhabitats that support unique groups of plants and animals. Join retired JSU geologist Dr. Kelly Gregg to learn about fossils and some of the ancient inhabitants of Little River, sharks, corals, ferns, ancient trees, and even giant salamanders. Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.

Date: Saturday, October 8, 2022

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Where: DeSoto State Park-Fort Payne, Alabama. Campfire Ring in the Improved Campground (In case of inclement weather will be located in the CCC Pavilion in picnic area)
