WEEKS BAY TRACTS in Baldwin County consist of a 91 acre parcel and a 19.467 acre parcel. These tracts, which are largely comprised of forest and marsh wetland habitats, were acquired with financial support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, through the National Coastal Wetlands program. Acquisition of these properties will benefit coastal wetlands by securing them from further development. Additionally these purchases will provide opportunities for ecological education and research as well as protection for Weeks Bay’s diverse natural communities. Weeks Bay was designated an Outstanding National Resource Water in 1992 and is located within one of Alabama’s fastest growing counties.
