Barber Alabama Woodlands

Open to all ages!

Join us on an exploration of the Barber Alabama Woodlands as we search for and learn more about pinecones. Education Activities Specialist, Dawn Lee, will lead families on a guided walk to discover the wonders of nature through the lens of a pinecone. There will be a short storytime with a take home craft using collected pinecones and supplied materials.


In accordance with the statewide mask mandate all participants in any outdoor programs will be required to maintain a minimum distance of six feet from any person from another household whenever possible, all participants over the age of six will be required to wear masks (subject to exceptions outlined by the mandate), and masks will be encouraged for participants under the age of six if possible.

Refunds (minus a $15 processing fee) will be given for Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens programs priced at $25 or more if notification is made at least 10 business days prior to class start date. (You are always welcome to send another person under your registration if you cannot attend.) Transfers may be made to programs of equal value at no additional fee. We reserve the right to cancel classes due to lack of participation or other unforeseen circumstances. Please note that programs are held rain or shine; in extreme weather conditions, programs may be canceled for your safety and the safety of staff and volunteers. If we cancel a program for any of these reasons, we will issue a full refund.
