Montgomery, AL -(AmmoLand.com)- This year is the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Westervelt wildlife management program, aimed at improving wildlife populations and hunting quality on company-owned lands – including prime hunting land across the Black Belt.

The Westervelt Lodge, opened in 1973 near Aliceville in Pickens County, is home base for 10,000 acres of rich bottomland and mixed pine hardwood forest. The Lodge offers full-service dove hunts, archery and rifle hunts for whitetail deer and unmatched upland wingshooting. Westervelt Lodge also offers conference facilities capable of handling all kinds of meeting, training and team-building needs.

The Westervelt Company began in 1884, when founder Herbert Westervelt developed Prairie States Paper Corporation.

According to the company website, “Realizing the importance of nature as a major resource in the paper-making business, the Westervelt family instilled the appreciation for the environment and its conservation. Appreciation of conservation facilitated our evolution from a manufacturing to a land resource management organization. With over half a million acres of timberlands, we continue to grow with the land serving as our guide.”
