Pond Owners Making A Difference
Pond owners allow schools and organizations of their choosing
to bring kids with an adult family member out to fish at their pond. The program works with pond owners in seven counties: Baldwin, Chilton, Hale, Jefferson, Mobile, Pike and Tallapoosa. Pond owners are interviewed and selected if they are: environmental stewards; enjoy working with kids; promote good pond management; accept liability waivers; and willing to consider allowing parents and kids angling opportunities after the initial event. The pond must have good fishing, be near the school or organization, have a neat and clean appearance, provide bathroom facilities, and have an area for everyone to eat their lunch.

Have you ever wanted to soar through the treetops like Tarzan and Jane? Then maybe zip-lining or a canopy tour is what you need. Or if you prefer a slower pace, climb aboard a majestic horse and mean- der down a wooded trail. We have some exhilarating alternatives to suggest this summer — and many are just an hour or two away.
Zip-lines seem to be all the rage. According to industry leaders, the concept of canopy and zip-line tours increased about 30 years ago as biologists sought to study the ecosystems of the rainforest. They wanted to examine the plants and animals living at the tops of the forest, but they didn’t want to adversely affect the ecology.
Today, Camp Butter and Egg is an outdoor adventure camp destination for thousands every year from not only Alabama and the southeast, but also the nation.
Last year according to Alabama Department of Tourism data, over 9,200 people came to Camp Butter and Egg outdoor adventure camp for the zip lines, overnight camping, mud runs and more.
When Ron and Susan bought the land, they had no plans of a recreational multi-purpose destination, but it did not take long to take form.
“We had no intentions of doing anything like this, but when our son Brett started playing recreation baseball I built an infield just to hit him ground balls,” Ron said.
