Amphibians are at Landmark Park on Friday July 11th

(DOTHAN--) Landmark Park will continue to present the annual “Animal Adventures” on Fridays July 11, 18, and 25. These special, one-hour educational programs provide unique opportunities to learn about our natural world. Children ages 5 and older are encouraged to come with their youth groups and families to see the wonder of native and exotic animals.

Amphibians can be slimy and lay eggs, but they also have lots of other interesting characteristics that make them unique. Join Jimmy Stiles as he talks about various amphibian species including frogs, salamanders and one big amphiuma. Mr. Stiles works with the Alabama Natural Heritage Program through Auburn University and has been involved in herpetology for 25 years.

Programs begin at 10 a.m. in the Interpretive Center at Landmark Park. Admission is free with paid admission to the park ($4 for adults, $3 for kids, free for members and children 2 and under). Reservations are required.

Landmark Park, home of the Alabama Agricultural Museum, is a 135-acre historical and natural science park located on U.S. Highway 431 North in Dothan, Al. For more information and to register for a program, contact the park at 334-794-3452 or
