The Selma Children’s Museum encourages children to explore their vast imagination while fostering an educational spirit with fun, hands-on activites. Parents can participate or watch as children peruse the 10 exhibits while learning about time zones, dinosaurs, cooking, and more. Blossoming chefs can craft pretend pizzas while following instructions and using imitation ingredients, while mindsplorers can hop into an inflatable raft to discover facts about the Alabama River, which flows from Mobile Bay all the way up to Alabama’s North Pole fortress. Tykes can tout their artistic sides with the Nature Impression exhibits, where they can use crayons and paper to make colorful rubbings of a favorite fossil.
As the sun rises over the forested wetlands of Dallas County, a group of camouflaged hunters leads dogs to a blind. From their perch, the shooters wait to spot passels of ducks or pheasants. The gunmen raise their rifles. They aim. Then they fire. Their feathered bounty falls from the sky.
Scenes such as this are business as usual during the autumn months at Central Alabama Fowl Preserve. There, staffers help outfit hunters with the amenities needed for a successful day, including a lodge equipped with bedrooms, a kitchen, and a social area where groups can unwind. On the offseason, the preserve opens a skeet-shooting range to help clients keep their aim sharp.
