America's Great Outdoors
Mountain Longleaf National Wildlife Refuge is situated within the Southern Appalachian Mountain Range between Atlanta, Georgia (90 miles) and Birmingham, Alabama (60 miles). The refuge was established May 29, 2003 on the former military training lands of Fort McClellan. Mountain Longleaf NWR became the 542nd refuge in the country.
The primary objective in establishing the refuge was the protection and management of the last remaining old growth stands and the best remaining mountain longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) forests in the Southeast. The 9,000-acre mountain refuge contains beautiful vistas and a rugged landscape of unfragmented forests.Photo: Sarah Clardy
