The 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.

Please make your gift via our secure online form.

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) orga­ni­za­tion there­fore your con­tri­bu­tion is tax deductible.

Why you should sup­port fresh­wa­ter land trust:

Freshwater Land Trust is…

  • is the only con­ser­va­tion non­profit orga­ni­za­tion that works to con­serve land solely in north-central Alabama;
  • has a proven track record: it has pro­tected –or helped to protect-over 10,000 acres across cen­tral Alabama since its incep­tion in 1997. This includes the 1,108-acre Red Moun­tain Park prop­erty and the 700-acre Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.
  • 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.
