Since it was established by constitutional amendment in 1992, the Forever Wild Land Trust has purchased more than 227,000 acres of land for public use. As of 2012, Alabama still had the smallest percentage of public conservation land (3.66 percent) in the Southeastern U.S. The Forever Wild Land Trust permanently owns 165,807 acres of this land, less than .51 percent of Alabama’s total land area. Additional land has also been secured under a long-term recreational lease.

Alabama’s Forever Wild Land Trust continues to work to expand the number of recreational areas available to the public, so that present and future generations can enjoy quality-of-life opportunities in the outdoors. Don’t just be proud of your state. Get out and enjoy it. After all, these public lands belong to you.
