Cahaba River_00003_120907Cosby Lake_00003_150325The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust works to acquire land to pro­tect our water qual­ity and to pre­serve open space. But, we can’t do it alone. Your con­tri­bu­tions are vital to land preser­va­tion. We all have a spe­cial place that mat­ters to us– a stream from your child­hood or the woods you hiked through with your chil­dren. With every pass­ing day, we stand to lose these spe­cial and irre­place­able places. Please con­sider a dona­tion of your money, time or skills to the Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust to help us con­tinue our work to ensure that future gen­er­a­tions have those same memories.

  • is a good invest­ment: it is very con­scious of how money is spent, mak­ing sure that every dol­lar is used to for­ward its mis­sion of acquir­ing and car­ing for lands that enhance water qual­ity and pre­serve open space.
  • is the first accred­ited land trust in Alabama (by the Land Trust Accred­i­ta­tion Com­mis­sion) and only one of 130 in the country.
