Environmental Education for grades 3 - 6
For eleven years Friends of the Locust Fork River has sponsored this environmental education opportunity for Blount County children in grades three to six. Held at King's Bend on the banks of the beautiful Locust Fork river, it’s gotten bigger and better every time – with more activity stations, more children and parents, more learning, and more fun. Certified canoe instruction, get-wet ecology, snakes, are just a few of the highlights. There will be fun and learning for county children in grades three to six who are accompanied by adults. Partners in providing environmental activities include Birmingham Canoe Club, Alabama River Alliance, Alabama Water Watch, McDowell Environmental Center, McWane Science Center, and more.
Day on the River is for Blount County children and their families. Come as a family or with your youth group. A parent or supervising adult MUST come along. Program and lunch are provided at no cost.

Water critter hunt

Nature games and more!
