Naturalist Cabin

Flora, fauna and critters. Oh, my! Marianne Gauldin is the Russell Lands Naturalist and Wildlife Educator. Marianne is a lifelong student of nature and an avid outdoorsman with over 12 years experience using forests as classrooms. Marianne has spent most of her personal and professional life in the woods. She introduces visitors to Russell Lands' variety of flora and fauna through specially scheduled Guided Nature Tours and Wildlife Presentations at the Russell Crossroads Naturalist Cabin.

Marianne is a wildlife rehabilitator licensed by the State of Alabama to raise and release native wildlife. Certain presentations at Russell Lands will feature these naive animals. When not walking the 100+ miles of beautiful trails in the Russell Forest, she's enjoying them from horseback.
