Munford Elementary School

Talladega County Schools   |   Munford, AL

Picture yourself entering a dark cave covered in stalagmites and stalactites, then passing through a hallway lined with trees and engaging interactive displays. When arriving at the lunchroom, you see a 250-gallon aquarium. Students at Munford Elementary School experience this daily as their school has been transformed through a partnership with the US Forest Service—all designed to immerse kids in learning about their natural surroundings in Alabama’s Talladega National Forest.
