Monthly Adventures: January, February, March, April, May (Part I), May (Part II), June

Welcome to the Eighth Day Escape adventure series and contest by Parks Explorer! Throughout this year, Parks Explorer will share trip ideas, staff stories, activity suggestions, and much more from each Alabama State Park. These monthly posts will be personal accounts of traveling Park Naturalist Emily Vanderford, where she details her park adventures and experiences in the unique natural areas across the state. While reading about park adventures is not nearly as meaningful as experiencing them first-hand, Parks Explorer wants you to know just how many opportunities there are for you to enjoy Alabama the beautiful.

The contest portion of the Eighth Day Escapes adventure series will feature monthly giveaways to show appreciation to park customers for their patronage. At the end of the year, there will be a Grand Prize drawing from all contest entries throughout 2016.
