For more information call (334) 242-3484. Editor's Note: Here are some questions you may consider asking yourself and others. Should the state provide recreational activity property? Is recreation a necessary service? Does the state need more public land to compete with recreational opportunities (many of which are already) provided by private forestland owners? Will more public land that doesn't pay taxes put pressure on private landowners to (eventually) pay more in taxes? Yet, is it not correct that Forever Wild property (over 271,000 acres) does not pay property taxes?
