Donated to ALT by International Paper in 1998 as part of the FERC dam re-licensing project, Stevens Island contains two state rare natural communities: Hardwood River Terrace Forest and Silver Maple Floodplain Forest. As such, this property is managed to protect its exemplary wetland habitat for wildlife.
