Campfire Talk: Mammals of 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!
Alabama is home to 62 native mammals: 22 species of rodents, 16 species of bats, 11 species of carnivores, six species of insectivores, four species of rabbits, one ungulate, one opossum and one armadillo.

Join Amber Baker, Wildlife Biologist from the Division of Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries for an entertaining program featuring the warm-blooded critters that can be seen through-out the state. See a collection of furs & skulls & discover characteristics of each species.
Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.
