The Robert G. Wehle Nature Center, located on 25 acres of rolling hill country in Bullock County, is designed to enhance the appreciation for conservation and an understanding of man’s relationship with the environment. It features conservation and environmental educational exhibits aimed at both students and adults.
A state-of-the-art audiovisual theater focuses on the natural wonders of outdoor Alabama. A conference area/exhibit room is available for conservation meetings and hands-on nature presentations. Remote from the main building, at the edge of a small wetland, sits a viewing kiosk which gives young naturalists an up-close and personal experience with the inhabitants of Alabama's wetland.
Three trails extend away from the Center, taking hikers on short, medium, and long treks through different habitats. These trails are augmented with interpretive stations highlighting the unique characteristics of many local plants and animals. A large pond provides opportunities for scheduled fishing events. The facility is used and/or provided by the Lands Division to promote environmental education either by its own staff members or educators from other divisions, agencies or institutions.
