Little River Canyon Visitor Center and Field Schools. This $7 million dollar facility, all funded with grant money, opened in February of 2009. Now that construction is complete, Dr. Gregg develops educational programs for the facility. This has included the creation of a series of interpretive nature trails, the re-location of an 1853 log cabin, and the accumulation and restoration of various artifacts from the early 19th century, including a loom and a cotton gin.
Dr. Gregg presented a paper entitled "Establishing a date for the construction of a mid-19th century cotton gin-carder" at the southeastern regional meeting of the Association of American Geographers. Along with the Alabama Geological Survey Mapping Division, he is creating a proposal for the first ever geological mapping of Little River Canyon that will probably require him to dangle by a rope off numerous cliffs.
