Action Alert: Participate in Forever Wild’s Five Year Plan


Black Warrior Riverkeeper is proud to support the work that Alabama’s Forever Wild Land Trust has done to secure public lands for outdoor recreation, the ecological integrity of Alabama’s landscape, as well as the flow of outdoor recreation and tourism dollars to local communities.  The last public listening session for Forever Wild’s Five Year Plan will be on Thursday, February 27th – 6pm at Jefferson State Community College | Shelby Campus | 4600 Valleydale Rd. | Birmingham, AL 35242.

Take Action:

1) Submit comments on how Forever Wild has favorably impacted you and what you would like for the program to accomplish in coming years

2) Attend the public hearing if you can. Your comments are important, as individuals opposed to Forever Wild will be commenting.

Background information:

Forever Wild is a state program dedicated to preserving Alabama’s most beautiful and environmentally sensitive places, all while expanding the recreational opportunities  available to the public.  The program protects land for recreation, hunting, and fishing — without raising taxes.  In a major victory for Alabama’s conservation movement, in 2012 Alabama citizens overwhelmingly voted to reauthorize Forever Wild funding for another 20 years.

Forever Wild properties in the Black Warrior River watershed include the Mulberry Fork Wildlife Management Area, M. Barnett Lawley Forever Wild Field Trial Area, Turkey Creek Tract, Turkey Creek-Thomas Tract, and the Ruffner Mountain Addition Tract.   Black Warrior Riverkeeper also supports possible future Forever Wild proposals in the Black Warrior River basin such as at Smith Lake and Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.
