What is the Helping Hands program? The Helping Hands Program is designed to maintain public use areas for future visitors, protect the natural resources by preventing erosion and social trails, and keep watersheds clean by removing trash from the public lands. Wild Alabama holds a volunteer agreement with the Alabama Forest Service in the Talladega National Forest and Bankhead National Forest. Between these two National Forests, Wild Alabama oversees stewardship events on over 200 miles of trail.
