Campfire Talk: A Crash Course in Alabama Botany for Rockhounds

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!

Alabama is often regarded as one of the most biologically diverse states, ranking #4 in the nation. Geology and biota have an inherent relationship, and biodiversity is no different--it a direct function of the state's exceptional geologic diversity. Take a tour of Alabama's most unexpected and peculiar habitats and learn about the rocky rules that govern our plant life. Join guest Naturalist Noah Yawn for this interesting talk, and see examples of petrified wood, agates, some really cool fossils, & more!

Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.
