Alabama: Hunting Opportunities Would be Extended with the Reauthorization of Forever
If ratified by Alabama voters on November 6, the Forever Wild Land Trust would be reauthorized for a 20-year period. Since its establishment by constitutional referendum in 1992, the Forever Wild Program has secured more than 227,000 acres with numerous opportunities being available for hunting. Despite Alabama’s undeniable natural beauty, it still lags behind other southeastern states in the amount of accessible public conservation and hunting land. The vast majority of funding for the Forever Wild Land Trust is generated by the interest earned from natural gas royalties, with no monies coming from the taxpayer.
