Living River, a nonprofit affiliated with the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley, has developed a camp and environmental center on the Cahaba River. On November 19 Southeastern Outings people will hike on the trails on the property for the fifth time.  Thirty-six people participated in one of our previous hikes to this area. The hike will be led by a staff member of the Cahaba Environmental Center at Living River. The approximately 3-mile hike is rated moderate. Living River, a tree-covered point nestled in a deep bend in the Cahaba River, preserves a mix of hardwoods and older trees that were once typical of Alabama’s river bottoms but elsewhere have been logged and replaced with faster-growing pines. The site is 440 acres in size, and because of its unique location, it fronts four miles of the river. The Cahaba River itself – the longest free-flowing river in Alabama – preserves a remarkable and fragile biodiversity, including an incredible variety of freshwater mussels, turtles, snails, and crayfish, as well as more fish species per mile than any other river in North America. The globally significant biodiversity of the Cahaba has been widely recognized by conservation groups and scientists. In this significant and beautiful place, the Presbyterian Church organization has built Living River, a retreat where young people will continue to discover the awakening power of an outdoor camping experience and where adults, families, and children can also step away from the demands of their everyday lives. During this hike, we will explore the variety of ecosystems on the Living River property. We will start with a trip out on the ‘thumb,’ the deep horseshoe bend of the Cahaba River, and then head out to more impacted forest ecosystems, including reclaimed mining sites. We will have the opportunity to learn about the natural and cultural history of the area. Our outing will conclude on top of a giant mine spoil where Pennsylvania period plant fossils can be found at every step. Please bring $2.00 per person EXACT CHANGE Living River fee to participate in this hike. Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 7 and older able to walk about 3 miles without complaining are welcome on this hike. Depart at 1:30 p.m. from McDonald’s Galleria. Info: Dan Frederick, seoutings@bellsouth.net or 205/631-4680 DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE McDonald’s Galleria-1731 Montgomery Highway, Hoover, AL 35244. Parking lot behind the McDonald’s Restaurant across U.S. 31 from the main entrance to the Riverchase Galleria Shopping Mall.

Silence: The Adventure of a Medieval Warrior Woman is a wickedly funny, plot-twisting tale of greed, lust, deceit, revenge, and the rewards and sacrifices that come from finding your true voice.

Based on a story written in the 13th century, and adapted for 21st-century audiences, Silence tells of a girl raised as a boy to protect her inheritance, since women were not allowed to inherit property in the England of the day. At crucial points in her life, the story’s main character — a kind of 13th-century Annie Oakley — must choose the weapon with which she’ll face the world: a jeweled sword or a sewing needle. Which would you choose? [less-]

Southeastern Outings Dayhike at Living River

Living River, a nonprofit affiliated with the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley, has developed a camp and environmental center on the Cahaba River. On November 19 Southeastern Outings people will hike on the trails on the property for the fifth time.  Thirty-six people participated in one of our previous hikes to this area. The hike will be led by a staff member of the Cahaba Environmental Center at Living River. The approximately 3-mile hike is rated moderate. Living River, a tree-covered point nestled in a deep bend in the Cahaba River, preserves a mix of hardwoods and older trees that were once typical of Alabama’s river bottoms but elsewhere have been logged and replaced with faster-growing pines. The site is 440 acres in size, and because of its unique location, it fronts four miles of the river. The Cahaba River itself – the longest free-flowing river in Alabama – preserves a remarkable and fragile biodiversity, including an incredible variety of freshwater mussels, turtles, snails, and crayfish, as well as more fish species per mile than any other river in North America. The globally significant biodiversity of the Cahaba has been widely recognized by conservation groups and scientists. In this significant and beautiful place, the Presbyterian Church organization has built Living River, a retreat where young people will continue to discover the awakening power of an outdoor camping experience and where adults, families, and children can also step away from the demands of their everyday lives. During this hike, we will explore the variety of ecosystems on the Living River property. We will start with a trip out on the ‘thumb,’ the deep horseshoe bend of the Cahaba River, and then head out to more impacted forest ecosystems, including reclaimed mining sites. We will have the opportunity to learn about the natural and cultural history of the area. Our outing will conclude on top of a giant mine spoil where Pennsylvania period plant fossils can be found at every step. Please bring $2.00 per person EXACT CHANGE Living River fee to participate in this hike. Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 7 and older able to walk about 3 miles without complaining are welcome on this hike. Depart at 1:30 p.m. from McDonald’s Galleria. Info: Dan Frederick, seoutings@bellsouth.net or 205/631-4680 DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE McDonald’s Galleria-1731 Montgomery Highway, Hoover, AL 35244. Parking lot behind the McDonald’s Restaurant across U.S. 31 from the main entrance to the Riverchase Galleria Shopping Mall.

Silence: The Adventure of a Medieval Warrior Woman is a wickedly funny, plot-twisting tale of greed, lust, deceit, revenge, and the rewards and sacrifices that come from finding your true voice.

Based on a story written in the 13th century, and adapted for 21st-century audiences, Silence tells of a girl raised as a boy to protect her inheritance, since women were not allowed to inherit property in the England of the day. At crucial points in her life, the story’s main character — a kind of 13th-century Annie Oakley — must choose the weapon with which she’ll face the world: a jeweled sword or a sewing needle. Which would you choose? [less-]
