Trust to hold 3 public meetings on Forever Wild

First meeting will take place in Huntsville

— HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Leaders of Alabama's Forever Wild Land Trust are holding a series of meetings to help plan the future of the program.

Officials are announcing plans for three public sessions to aid in the development of a long-range plan for the program, which purchases and preserves unspoiled acreage all over the state.

The first session will be held Jan. 23 in Huntsville, followed by a meeting on Feb. 20 in Spanish Fort and a final one in Birmingham on Feb. 27.

The main goal is to plan and discuss future land acquisitions by the program.

The Forever Wild Land Trust program acquired 104 tracts of land totaling 240,678 acres in its first 21 years in operation.

Voters overwhelmingly approved an extension of the program in 2012.
