In addition to the programs listed on our calendar, Ruffner Mountain offers on-site and off-site educational opportunities: "Alabama Animals" Grades K-8 and "Animal Meet and Greet" Pre-K, where students will discover the amazing wildlife of Alabama with an up-close encounter featuring three of Ruffner's animal ambassadors. Program costs range from $50-$90.

In partnership with Fresh Air Family, Ruffner Mountain is thrilled to announce its new educational program. It connects every single program we do here at Ruffner: in-school programs, school field trips, family field trips, summer and holiday camps, and group programs like homeschools, Boy and Girl Scouts, and churches. We also plan to implement teacher workdays to prepare teachers for our programs and offer them new teaching tools.
Our education program is based on the basic concept that humans are a part of nature. Too often, the learning process is fragmented and students have a hard time putting all the information they receive into a meaningful package. In our program, everything is linked: from the ecosystem, to the economy, to the health of the community, to the mental and physical well-being of the individual.
We hope you will join us at Ruffner Mountain to take part in this new and exciting educational endeavor.
