Visiting this extraordinary "botanical lost world"

Strongly sloping glade - Photo Courtesy of James Allison Visiting this preserve will prove to be an adventure, never before embarked on, due to the fact that eight of the plant species found on the glades were previously unknown. So, seeing these plant species would certainly be a unique experience. This preserve allows visitors to participate in educational activities throughout the year, such as wildlife observation, fishing, hiking, photography and canoeing. Also, when visiting the site, you will view the Little Cahaba River at a place both scenic and historic, sight of the Brighthope Furnace, the earliest ironworks built in the state of Alabama.
