A hiking trail. A fishing hole. A backyard creek. Why do these places matter? What are they worth to you? What if with just $20, you can ensure they are preserved forever?

Over the past 20 years, the Freshwater Land Trust has worked to preserve the places that matter most to Alabamians. So, in celebration of our 20th anniversary this year, we’re inviting you to join our 20for20 Challenge!

Donors like you help ensure that the trails, fishing holes and creeks you love most are protected in perpetuity. Your $20 donation, or more, will support the land trust’s work to preserve critical watershed land throughout Greater Birmingham.

The Freshwater Land Trust has had two decades of success in land conservation, but there is even more ground to cover in the next 20 years. Your $20 donation helps the Freshwater Land Trust….

  • Purchase 20 acres of critical watershed land along the Cahaba River for public recreation.
  • Identify the next 20 miles of key trail connectors to the Red Rock Trail System.
  • Stabilize more than 20 feet of sensitive streambank along Village Creek.
  • Protect the habitats of the vermilion darter, found only in Turkey Creek.

Your dollars impact our conservation work on the ground. As a Freshwater Land Trust supporter, you’ll join an extensive network of like-minded conservationists who are working to preserve water quality and open space in our community, so that we can pass along our rich, natural heritage to those who come after us.

Join the 20 for 20 Anniversary Challenge today, and help us preserve the trails, creeks, swimming holes, and outdoor places you enjoy every day.

Make your minimum $20 donation by clicking the button below, or you can send your gift by mail to 2308 First Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203. You can also contribute monthly and become a member of the Freshwater Land Trust. Your generous contributions are changing the landscape of Central Alabama forever.
