About Us

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.
