Come & Visit

Frog Pond Wildlife Preserve and Observation Area is located on a two acre seasonal wetland in the hills of Northeast Alabama, just a short drive from the cities of Jacksonville and Anniston in White Plains.

Come & Learn

Wetlands are living laboratories of biodiversity. In fact, wetlands provide habitat for about one third of all federally listed endangered plant and animal species. They also provide nesting spots for more than half of the nation's migratory birds. But even more importantly, they are essential to the quality of human life. Wetlands can reduce flooding, control erosion, recharge our aquifers and improve water quality. Wetlands are valuable, but they're vanishing. The Frog Pond is a little wetland, but it is important too!

Come & Enjoy

Few places in Calhoun County provide a more beautiful setting than the Frog Pond. With a little bit of luck you may experience a chorus of owls, frogs or song birds as they provide background music for herons, ducks or maybe even bats, as they fly gracefully over the wetland. Relax and simply enjoy the beautiful sounds and scenes provided by your natural Alabama.
