Lillian Swamp Overview
Covering 1,452 acres of pine savannah wetland habitat adjacent to Perdido Bay, Baldwin County’s Lillian Swamp consists of three acquisitions (Nos. 29, 31 and 54) managed as a Nature Preserve. The Lillian Swamp–West Tract Addition 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.
