Jacksonville State University and the National Park Service are preparing for the official opening of the Little River Canyon Center this Sunday. The public grand opening will be from 1:00 -5:00pm Alabama time, offering tours, music, a variety of program and presentations, food and more.

Pete Conroy, Director of the JSU Environmental Policy & Information Center, whose involvement with the project began with lobbying for funding back in 1989, says that the Canyon Center was created for everyone and is also set up to help everyone.
