Join a naturalist while you hike on Canecutter Trail and the Gateway to the Delta Boardwalk at Meaher State Park and celebrate the new year! This will be a relatively easy walk that is just under a mile long. We will get to see and enjoy the immense biodiversity of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta. With migratory birds, winter plants, waterways teeming with life, and the new year ahead of us, there will be plenty of things to chat about!


People of all ages and leashed pets are welcome!
