Forever Wild Board Meeting Set for June 23 at Auburn’s Dixon Hotel & Conference Center

The Board of Trustees of the Alabama Forever Wild Land Trust will hold its second quarterly meeting on June 23, 2005, at the Governor’s Room in the Dixon Hotel and Conference Center on College Street, just across from the Ralph Draughon Library, Auburn, Alabama. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m.

At this meeting, the Forever Wild Program activities will be updated. This meeting will also serve as a public hearing for any individual who would like to make comments concerning this program.

The general public is invited to attend this meeting and is urged to submit comments and nominations of tracts of land for possible Forever Wild Program purchase. Written nominations may be made by letter addressed to the State Lands Division, Room 464, 64 N. Union St., Montgomery, AL 36130.

Quarterly meetings of the Forever Wild Board are held in order to maximize public input into the program. Only through active public participation can the best places in Alabama be identified and protected in order to remain Forever Wild!

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
