Last night, Ruffner Mountain celebrated its 40th year with the unveiling of a new donor wall. A one of a kind work of art, the colorful mural depicts the urban natural world. The wall honors the Ruffner’s founders, donors, foundations and volunteers who have poured their blood, sweat and tears into a nature preserve in Birmingham that is larger than New York City’s Central Park.
