Natural Resource Coordinating Council


Located in the midst of Alabama’s Blackbelt, Perry County is rich in natural resources. Through local collaboration with various entities we have formed the Perry County Natural Resource Coordinating Council which oversees both youth and adult educational programs and tours. Annually, youth participate in Classroom in the Forest and Forest in the Classroom activities. To learn more, contact our office at (334) 683-6888.

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.
