Many people don’t realize that Alabama has a wealth of forests, parks, woods and waterways, and it all belongs to them. Those public lands are there for all Alabamians to enjoy now and forever.

These public properties make up the Forever Wild Land Trust, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month. Since it was established by a vote of the people in 1992, Forever Wild has grown to 285,000 acres, encompassing 200 tracts of land in 31 Alabama counties.

“Alabama is blessed with such beautiful forests, waterways and other outdoor properties,” said Chris Blankenship, commissioner of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and chairman of the Forever Wild Land Trust board of trustees. “These lands belong to me, you and everyone. They are set aside for the people of Alabama, and I hope they will get out and use their ‘Forever Wild’ property.”
