For outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, the Forever Wild Land Trust has provided opportunities throughout the state to explore all that Alabama’s natural beauty has to offer.
The Forever Wild program was established in 1992 by Alabama voters, with support from Alabama Power and many other organizations, nonprofits, policymakers and individuals. Since then, it has acquired nearly 300,000 acres for public use. The program has provided more than 363 miles of recreational trails, added acreage to nine state parks and created 23 new recreational areas and nature preserves.
