This past Saturday, friends and families celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Little Canyon National Preserve at the Jacksonville State University Canyon Center in Fort Payne, Alabama. Established by an Act of Congress on October 24th, 1992, the Preserve is Alabama’s only National Park unit dedicated to a natural area.
This upcoming Saturday, October 21st, people throughout the South will travel to Little River Canyon National Preserve to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the park.
According to the National Park Service (NPS), visitation at the Little River Canyon National Preserve nearly doubled in 2016.
Park visitation was over 462,703 in 2016 compared to 248,137 visitors in 2015. The 86% jump in attendance occurred primarily because the NPS increased its efforts to more accurately count visits to the park.
