Overview
The Red Hills Complex in Monroe County consists of two acquisitions totaling 4,376 acres that provide crucial habitat for the federally listed Red Hills Salamander and many other rare species of plants and animals.

Wet ravine and upland pine forest include a mix of natural coastal plain habitats and pine-plantation forest between the Alabama River drainages of Beaver and Tallatchee creeks.

The tracts were purchased in partnership with the Alabama Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and, in part, through financial assistance from a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Endangered Species grant.

Recreational opportunities on these tracts include hunting, bird watching and wildlife viewing.
