Overview
Covering 2,141 acres of pine savannah wetland habitat adjacent to Perdido Bay, Baldwin County’s Lillian Swamp Complex consists of several acquisitions managed as a nature preserve. The Lillian Swamp Complex was acquired with financial support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Coastal Wetlands grant program.

Adjacent to the Lillian Swamp Complex are tracts owned by ADCNR’s State Lands Division and the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT). Habitat management and recreational opportunities, such as hiking, hunting and wildlife observation, benefit from coordination between Forever Wild, the State Lands Division and ALDOT.

Hunting
Hunters must have a valid hunting license and permit map; and follow regulations, seasons, and limits for the county in which the tract is located.  The free permit maps may be downloaded here.
