If you've been watching the latest political moves in Montgomery, you'll know several state agencies stand to lose significant funding in the budgeting process.  Lawmakers have until October 1 to pass a budget for the next fiscal year.

The Alabama State Parks Partners coalition has planned three rallies this Saturday, September 12 at three state parks.  Supporters urge as many people to attend as possible to help urge legislators to fully fund the state parks.

Supporters ask that you share the information on social media with #ALParksRally and invite people to take a stand for Alabama's beautiful state parks.
