The Southern Environmental Center (SEC) at Birmingham-Southern College is both a top field trip destination and a resource for urban sustainability throughout the region. The Center’s Interactive Museum, GeoDome Theater & EcoScape Garden on campus host 20,000 visitors every year https://www.bsc.edu/sec/visit.html SEC also provides educational programs at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, a 466 acre Forever Wild property located within a short drive from Birmingham https://turkeycreeknp.com/programming/
The Southern Environmental Center’s Interactive Museum is the only museum of its kind in the nation: an interactive ‘eco’ museum & meeting space built from recycled materials and constructed on top of a re-purposed college swimming pool. It provides an ideal setting for field trips, birthday parties, or corporate retreats. Combine your visit with a tour of our sensory EcoScape garden filled with recycled art sculptures and year round color, and prepare yourself for jaw dropping drone & GoPro video coverage of Alabama’s natural wonders in our GeoDome Theater.
