Rock the Trails!

AM&G Logo

Did you know the Anniston Museums and Gardens (AM&G) is home to three nature trails with a wide variety of plant species? You can explore the Mrs. Eugenia G. Brannon Nature Trail with two main loops, the Bird of Prey Trail, and the Longleaf Nature Trail. Explore with our education team for a fun afternoon of creativity as we paint nature-inspired images and encouraging messages on rocks. Once your masterpiece is complete, you can help us “Rock the Trails” by placing your rock on one of AM&G’s three trails for guests to enjoy along the way. 

This program is included in museum admission and is free for members.
