Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area – French’s Lake

French Lake (part of the Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area) is located on the Clearwater Forever Wild Tract and features an access point into the vast Mobile-Tensaw Delta system via the Bartram Canoe Trail managed by the Alabama Department of Conservation, State Lands Division. Several featured trails start from this launch offering great opportunities to experience the natural wonders of the Delta. Wood Duck, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Barred Owl, Acadian Flycatcher, Prothonotary Warbler, and Northern Parula are just a few of the birds that you will likely encounter both while paddling a canoe or walking. Hike along the water’s edge or into the adjacent upland piney woods any time of year. Learn about birding opportunities here.
