The North Alabama Agriplex Board’s second Nature Day Camp is a partnership with the Cullman Parks, Recreation & Sports Tourism, Alabama Mountains Rivers Valleys RC&D, and Cullman County Soil and Water Conservation District. Campers spent two days learning all things nature from fishing to kayaking to proper land management.
