4-H Wildlife Demonstrations Return to Blakeley State Park
SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) – Blakeley Historic State Park in Spanish Fort will host two special wildlife programs later this month.
On Saturday, July 23, the staff of Alabama 4-H School of Science will present their special “Back 2 Natives” programs featuring a collection of native Alabama animal species of raptors and reptiles.
Programs will be held in conjunction with the Alabama 4-H Science School, which is included with regular admission to the park. These conversation-based presentations are engaging hands-on educational programs for guests of all ages.
At 9 a.m., before wildlife programs, the park will offer a special two-hour cruise aboard the Delta Explorer to the site of the “ghost fleet” that was once moored along the Tensaw River. The Victory and Liberty ships were part of the Navy’s strategic reserve fleet in the years following World War II. Although the last of the ships was retired in the 1970s, parts of the docks remain and the fleet is an integral part of local history.
The 4-H program will take place on Saturday, July 23 at 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Both programs are one hour long.
