White Tailed Deer in Alabama

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!

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) are some of the most recognized wildlife in Alabama. They are   a common sight along roadsides, in fields, and even in some backyards throughout the state. Deer are common residents of most rural parts of Alabama, as well as many of the urban and suburban areas of the state. Join guest naturalist Amanda Glover from Lake Guntersville State Park to learn more about White-tailed deer.

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