A group that promotes environmental awareness says Alabama made some big gains in 2012.
The Green Resource Center for Alabama has released its 5th annual Green Progress Report. It says the extension of the Forever Wild land trust program was 1 of the state's top environmental achievements.
Voters approved continuing the program in November. The 20-year-old program has let the state buy 220,000 acres of land to be used for hunting, fishing, bird watching and other activities.
The center report also highlights the Restore Act, which Congress passed to help with the recovery from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
The board president of the center, Susan Barron, says Alabama made significant environmental progress this year with the two measures.
