Upcoming Workshop:

September 20-22, 2019 at Oak Mountain State Park

Registration for new participants for the September event will open August 1. 


Outdoor Alabama Experience is a weekend workshop full of opportunities to learn about many of the great ways your family can enjoy Alabama's beautiful outdoors! The program is designed for families, and all experience levels are welcomed! A program hosted by the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries and State Parks Divisions of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the workshop features hands-on learning about camping, hiking, biking, wildlife watching, shooting sports, fishing, hunting, kayaking, and more! The program is held in the spring and fall at various State Park locations across the state, and courses taught may vary based on location. Families will be able to choose the classes that are most interesting to them, and will leave with the confidence and information needed to continue enjoying those activities in Alabama's great outdoors!

Workshop participants will receive a camping discount in the park hosting the event. Whether your family are experienced campers or completely brand new to the idea, we have you covered! Experienced staff will be available to help with campsite setup and any questions you may have. You may also choose to stay in other park (or outside) accommodations of your choice based on availability.

Workshop cost:
$100 per two family members plus additional $25 for each additional family participant. Includes all meals (Friday supper; Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and Sunday breakfast), participant t-shirt, and weekend instruction for all family participants. This price does not include lodging.
