Discovering Alabama Explores Tumbling Waters

Enjoy beautiful views and tranquil sounds of Alabama's rivers and streams in a new DISCOVERING ALABAMA special.


Discovering Alabama with Doug Phillips celebrates the new year with a new episode exploring Alabama’s diverse river systems. Doug canoes through one of Alabama’s many creeks in this “Tumbling Waters” special, boasting about our state’s combined 132,000 miles of rivers and streams. This episode features the beauty of the Noccalula Falls Black Creek River located in Gadsden.

Enjoy the natural sounds of flowing water, rustling leaves, gentle rainfall and then the terrific surge of the famous waterfall at Noccalula. No camera angle is the same as the film offers clever aerial shots and underwater dives. Discovering Alabama grants viewers quiet and relaxation with stunning visuals that properly appreciate Alabama’s beautiful landscape.

Doug Phillips is widely known for his education and travels in Alabama’s wildlands. Discovering Alabama takes a moment to remind viewers of his adventures at Bear Creek Watershed and Sipsey River Swamp over 20 years ago. Producing and hosting the program for 40 years has taken Dr. Doug to rivers in every part of the state.

Discovering Alabama is a production of the Alabama Museum of Natural History.
