Southern Environmental Center

The Southern Environmental Center (SEC) is the largest educational facility of its kind in Alabama and can handle groups of up to 100 visitors at a time. Visit The Interactive Museum (TIM), a two-story environmental showcase that challenges visitors to slide down a giant Sewage Pipe, lift a week’s worth of garbage, or identify the sources of air pollution on a moving cityscape model.  Learn about medicinal plants, edible landscapes, and sustainable landscape practices in the EcoScape, a 4-acre outdoor classroom.  The SEC is also active in the community, initiating a number of model partnerships targeting water quality, smog, and urban sprawl.
