The Freshwater Land Trust’s mission is the acquisition and stewardship of lands that enhance water quality and preserve open space. We acquire, conserve, and connect open spaces that are critical for the protection of rivers and streams and that provide recreational opportunities for the community. We are based in Birmingham, Alabama, and we work in Jefferson, Shelby, Blount, Chilton, Bibb. St. Clair, Tuscaloosa, and Walker Counties. We are a conservation group that works to ensure that everyone wins: landowners, businesses and communities alike.
The Freshwater Land Trust is accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The accreditation seal recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust, and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent.
