Located within the Mobile, Alabama U.S. Army Corps of Engineers District, the Lower Devils Swamp Tract is one of three separate units that combine to form the South MS Mitigation Bank that was formally approved by Mobile District, along with expansions currently underway. It is both a pine/savannah and bottomland hardwood wetland, with stream mitigation bank included on the expansion. The 909 acre Lower Devil's Swamp unit is actively managed with periodic controlled burns and elimination of invasive plants. Major story lines likely on addressing ongoing management aspects (see image file) plus dealing with major upset caused by Hurricane Katrina (flooded to depth of 7' to 8' with salt water from Gulf.) The site's full recovery in subsequent years makes it an interesting regional success story.
