      Located in Pinson, Alabama, only 15 miles north of Birmingham, Turkey Creek Nature Preserve’s 466-acre’s are home some of the most stunning and unique beauty found anywhere in the Southeast. TCNP was established through a partnership between Alabama’s Forever Wild Program and the Freshwater Land Trust and is co-managed by the Southern Environmental Center (SEC). In late 2008, an agreement was reached with the SEC to setup an environmental education center at the entrance to the preserve. The SEC opened this facility on May 9, 2009 and provides school groups, scout troops, and others with hands-on educational programming.

      Admission to Turkey Creek Nature Preserve is always FREE, but maintaining it is NOT Please visit our support page to learn how you can help keep TCNP open.
