Disclaimer

To avoid double counting acres where multiple programs contributed to the acquisition of a single parcel, the acreage is only aggregated under the program that provided the majority of funding. For example, if the table below displays a dollar amount greater than $0 for a given year but shows 0 acres, the program was not the primary contributor for any parcels in that year. As a result, a prolific program may show very low acreage figures on this page. To see customized program information please visit the map viewer tab or contact the Conservation Almanac Team.

Highlighted State Programs

Alabama Forever Wild Land Trust Program

Voters established the Forever Wild program in 1992 and reauthorized it in 2012. The program has purchased lands for general recreation, nature preserves, additions to wildlife management areas and state parks. To date, the program has secured more than 248,000 acres of land in Alabama for public use, including more than 186,000 in permanent ownership. The remainder of the land is long-term recreational lease. Forever Wild lands are managed by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources through the State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries divisions.
