THE POST-OAK FLAT TRACT in Jackson County consists of 2,433 acres adjoining the Walls of Jericho Tract, which was purchase in 2004. The tract is comprised of mountainous and wooded terrain, hosting caves, springs, rocky bluffs and portions of the headwaters of the Big Coon Creek and Mud Creek watersheds. In partnership with the Alabama Forestry Commission and the Forever Wild Program, an additional 1,223 acres of forest habitat were acquired by the State Lands Division through a $1.2 Million U.S. Forest Service Forest Legacy grant. Both parcels are adjacent to Skyline Wildlife Management Area, on its southern boundary.
