It’s not like any other place: rolling hills, crooked creeks, prime hunting and fishing, friendly folks, and lots of trees! Welcome to Clay County, Alabama, where more than 80 percent of the land is a forest. Trees paint a beautiful landscape, but they also help clean water, improve air quality, become useful products, and provide jobs. In a rural county like Clay County, our natural resources are one of our biggest assets.
The Alabama Master Naturalist program is a new statewide program whose goal is to help promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Alabama’s natural world among Alabama’s citizens and visitors. In addition, the AMN program will also develop a statewide corps of well-informed volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.
