Fresh Air Family April events are set to bring the Birmingham community together as a family through nature.
From nature walks to its beloved Gross Out Camps, Fresh Air Family continues to bring young children and their families outdoors. Even my children have enjoyed attending Gross Out Camps two years in a row!
Now celebrating 15 years, the Fresh Air Family has a host of events already scheduled. Here a few for the month of April:
