PERDIDO RIVER-LONGLEAF HILLS TRACT in Baldwin County consists of 3,500 acres of wetlands and uplands along the Perdido River, adjacent to existing State of Alabama tracts and previous acquisitions made through the Forever Wild Program (acquisitions #48. Perdido River-Longleaf Hills). The tract is comprised of 30% forested wetland habitats supporting an Atlantic white-cedar community within a unique blackwater stream corridor, as well as associated drains and bogs, which are bordered by an upland pine-sandhill forest favoring a longleaf pine community. In partnership with The Alabama Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the Forever Wild Program, an additional 5,804 acres of similar forest habitat were acquired by the State Lands Division with financial support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), through a $4.6 Million Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program grant and a $3 Million Coastal Impact Assistance Program award.
This tract is managed as part of the Perdido River Wildlife Management Area.
