Northern Alabama: Discovering Natives with our Neighbors
|Pitcher Plants, Kaul Wildflower Garden|
|Bibb County Glades Preserve|
|Jim & Fy Lacefield, Cane Creek Canyon Preserve|
|Cathedral Caverns State Park|
As we fanned over to the northeast corner of the state we crossed a national preserve, part of the US National Park System. Cousin to our western parks, and equally impressive, the LittleRiver Canyon National Preserve sports a river flowing atop a mountain. The steep canyon walls, appropriately named "Little River", are the most extensive canyon and gorge system in the eastern United States, and habitat for the carnivorous green pitcher plant and Kral’s water plantains.
