       The Board of Trustees of the Alabama Forever Wild Land Trust will hold its second quarterly meeting on June 21, 2007, at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum at 6030 Barber Motorsports Parkway in Leeds, Alabama. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m.
       At this meeting, the Forever Wild Program activities and tract assessments will be updated. This meeting will also serve as a public hearing for anyone who would like to make comments concerning this program.
       The public is invited to attend this meeting and is urged to submit comments and nominations of tracts of land for possible Forever Wild Program purchase. Written nominations may be made by letter addressed to the State Lands Division, Room 464, 64 N. Union St., Montgomery, AL 36130.
       Quarterly meetings of the Forever Wild Board are held to maximize public input into the program. Only through active public participation can the best places in Alabama be identified and protected in order to remain forever wild.
