Winter Programs at Ruffner

We’d be the first to admit Ruffner is not exactly the Chapel of Love when it comes to weddings. You’ve got to work to your strengths, right? That’s why we decided to utilize all of our resources to be Birmingham’s premier resource for nature education.

Every day at Ruffner we work to raise awareness of the importance of the natural world, and our intimate connection to it. In this spirit, we are excited to bring you the Winter portion of our 2017 Programs Calendar. Our EcoArts, Citizen Science, and Volunteer Work Days give you the opportunity to learn more about the natural world while experiencing it first-hand. Through a deeper understanding of ecology, we will realize our vision of a future when the flora, fauna, and people of Birmingham coexist as members of a single healthy and sustainable habitat.

As we move into the new year, we will continue to do what we do best, creating and restoring native habitats, while working to make your Ruffner experience better than ever. Stay tuned for our full 2017 Programs Calendar, and till then, we hope to see you at one of our many upcoming programs!
