Night Critters of the Conecuh

On April 7, 2017 4-H members in Covington county will have the unique chance to explore the Conecuh National Forest and learn about the nocturnal creatures who inhabit it.

This event, which will be held at the Open Pond picnic pavilion,  will include talks by local experts, including Mr. Jimmy Stiles, one of Alabama’s most well known herpetologists. We will begin at 5pm and end around 8:30. Come and learn about the Long Leaf Pine ecosystem and its important role in our area. Join us as we learn to distinguish frog calls and search for the creatures that make our world so interesting.

All 4-H members are welcome to attend. Youth who do not drive must be accompianied by a parent. We will serve hotdogs, drinks, and roast marshmallows for s’mores by the fire.  We encourage you to bring your flashlight and rubber rain boots if you have some, and to wear something that you do not mind getting wet and dirty.  There is very limited space, so be sure to sign your child up today by calling the Covington County Extension office at 334-222-1125.
