Blakeley State Park to host Alabama 4-H wildlife demonstrations July 23

Posted

Blakeley State Park makes a great weekend destination or a day trip hiking through the trails. This Saturday, the Alabama 4-H Science School staff will present two hands-on programs at the Wehle Center.

"Back 2 Natives" is a program featuring a collection of Alabama's native raptor and reptile species. The conversation-based presentations are engaging, hands-on educational programs for all ages. The programs last one hour and are complimentary with regular park admission. Visitors have two opportunities to take in the program at 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.

If you are looking for a full day of fun, take the 9 a.m. two-hour cruise aboard the Delta Explorer to the site of the "Ghost Fleet" which once lay moored along the Tensaw near Blakeley State Park. The mothballed Victory and Liberty ships were a part of the Navy's strategic reserve fleet in the years after World War II. Though the last of the ships were removed in the 1970s, portions of the docks remain, and the fleet is an enduring part of local history.

Historic Blakeley State Park is located on Highway 225 in Spanish Fort. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit blakeleypark.com or call (251) 626-0798.
