The Alabama Nature Center at the Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) has a goal of introducing visitors to the woods, water and wildlife in Alabama. Guests get up close and personal with native wildlife. Recently added to their educational display units are the Eastern Indigo Snake and Gray Rat Snake. These exhibits are designed in a way to mimic the snakes' natural habitats so that guests get a complete visual of these species in the wild.
The AWF is the oldest and largest non-profit conservation organization in Alabama. The AWF was established by sportsmen in 1935 to promote the conservation and wise use of our wildlife and natural resources and to ensure a high quality of life for future generations of Alabamians.
AWF headquarters is located at Lanark in Millbrook, Alabama. Lanark contains five distinct destinations: AWF Headquarters, Historic Lanark, Lanark Pavilion, the Alabama Nature Center and the NaturePlex.
