The Nature Center Will Be Closed Friday, May 4

On Thursday, May 3, a hiker fell from a cliff at the Quarry. It saddens us immensely to say that the fall was fatal. In light of this, and out of respect for the hiker's family, the Nature Center will be closed tomorrow.

We'd like to thank the Birmingham Police Department, Birmingham Fire and Rescue, the Irondale Fire Department, and the paramedics who responded to this horrible accident. Your help is invaluable.

Also, thank you to our visitors and members for your patience during this time. The Nature Center will reopen Saturday morning.

Our thoughts are with the hiker's family and friends during this difficult time.
