In an effort to continue conservation on public lands, Wild Alabama adopted five miles of highway that borders the Sipsey Wilderness in the Bankhead National Forest. In a partnership with PALS and ALDOT (People Against a Littered State and Alabama Department of Transportation, respectively), Wild Alabama has agreed to maintain a litter free five miles. In addition to this stretch of road, we also do at least one per year roadside clean up on Cranal Road which is the southern border of the Sipsey Wilderness.
These are great opportunities for larger groups to come together for service. Youth groups, scout groups, home school groups, businesses and public land user groups can give back to their public lands in service.
The Sipsey Fork is Alabama's only Wild& Scenic River. It's popularity has brought hot spots for littering and abuse. The summer of 2020 through the end of October 2020 Wild South received a grant through River Network to host cleanups along the Sipsey Fork and its tributaries.
