The Pike County Pocosin Complex
Location: Pike County
The Pike County Pocosin Complex is made up of 2 different tracts totaling 333 acres. It is located in Pike County and supports two unique plant communities: an uncommon scrub-hardwood/longleaf pine/reindeer moss vegetation type and an unusual evergreen plant community occurring in deep ravines on the site. The complex serves to partner with Troy University, which holds a 17 acre donation of Pocosin habitat previously donated by the Seller’s Family to TSU, in support of environmental education programs there. The Pike County Pocosin Complex also offers recreational opportunities like hunting and bird watching
The Management Objectives of the complex are conservation of Alabama’s unique “Pocosin” ecosystem, outdoor recreation (including public hunting), scientific research and education.
