2018 Spring AWS State Meetings

First Meeting: March 23rd – 25th at Lakepoint Resort State Park


Lakepoint Resort State Park situated on the banks of Lake Eufaula along the Walter George Reservoir and Georgia state line and 1.5 hours southeast of Montgomery in the town of Eufaula. It is within a few minutes of the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge that covers about 11,184 acres along both banks of the Chattahoochee River in southeast Alabama.  Wetlands, croplands, woodlands, old fields, grasslands, and open water create a mosaic of wildlife-rich habitats that support almost 300 species of birds, 40 species of mammals, and many species of amphibians, reptiles and fishes. We hope to spot some trilliums, trout lily, and piedmont azaleas.
