Land preserved
and protected for your
recreational use.

We believe in stewardship – not merely preserving and sustaining Alabama’s beauty, but fostering a sense of ownership of our common lands. The Preserves are driven by the kind of innovative thinking that birthed the lakes around which they sit. The kind of innovation that doesn’t just make things better, it makes them last.

A PASSION TO PRESERVE

As part of operating 14 dams along the Coosa, Tallapoosa and Black Warrior rivers, Alabama Power manages more the 3,500 miles of shoreline and nearly 120,000 acres of land. Our team of shoreline managers work closely with communities surrounding the reservoirs to protect and enhance the scenic, recreational and environmental resources these lakes offer.
