Last week, Bham Now published its third installment about the state of Alabama’s biodiversity titled, Alabama has a secret: Its unexplored forests and plants.
In the development of the article, we were fortunate to work closely with one of the state’s most effective conservation organizations,The Nature Conservancy in Alabama.
While working with the group, we learned about the wonderful world of The Nature Conservancy’s nature preserves and rare plants.
Below is a photo gallery and links of a few of our favorite rare plants and information about the nature preserves in which they reside. Many of the preserves are open to the public.
Take our special tour of Alabama’s natural wonder. You won’t regret it.
