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 the only conservation nonprofit organization that works to conserve land solely in north-central Alabama;
