Meeting facilities are available, as are activities like camping and fishing. Also, at Alligator Alley (pictured right) in Summerdale, groups can hold a small alligator then have a catered lunch in a shaded picnic area. The attraction offers an elevated viewing platform, where you can see over 450 alligators from hatchlings to mature adults. ■ Go Gator Spotting Share The Beach Encourage attendees to participate in an activity like the Alabama Coastal Cleanup or Share The Beach, a sea turtle volunteer program. From May through October each year, the beaches are shared with dozens of momma sea turtles. These endan- gered animals are looking for a safe place to make a nest where their babies can hatch, then find their way safely into the warm Gulf waters. The program Share the Beach helps make sure the hatchlings safely make their way to the water. ■
