Little River Canyon National Preserve in Northeast Alabama is a beautiful retreat to escape to in the southern Appalachians. I look forward to retreating there soon myself to do research explorations capturing the preserve in my sketchbook, videos, photographs, and plein air studies. I have completed some Cloudland Canyon paintings, but I have not started on any of the Little River Canyon. I sure look forward to new hikes exploring places in the canyon not yet traveled by myself. I welcome your recommendations and information about the preserve. If you have interesting information about beautiful sites within the preserve, I would be most interested to hear about them.

While we enjoy the fantastic scenery of Lookout Mountain, we cannot forget the great people that keep this great nature sanctuary preserved for future generations. One great organization of people that lends a big helping hand is the Friends of the Preserve at Little River Canyon. Working in partnership with the National Park Service they help to preserve and manage around 13,000 park acres. They do not get their due. What a job! If you would like to donate your time or money to help them, follow the highlighted link.
I will be talking to various groups and organizations about how I can use my art project to preserve the habitat of Lookout Mountain. I would love to see the old barns that remain restored and maintained being a farm boy. I hate seeing these old relics of the past collapsing losing them for future generations. Farming built America and sustains America. We cannot do enough to preserve our farm heritage. Paul Harvey said it best in his “So God Made a Farmer” speech at a 1978 Future Farmers of America convention. God bless the farmer. I’ve known a lot of them, and I’m the better for knowing them.
Thank you for stopping by to check on my Delmar Greene Lookout Mountain Art Project.
