We are the Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust, a non­profit orga­ni­za­tion whose mis­sion is the acqui­si­tion and stew­ard­ship of lands that enhance water qual­ity and pre­serve open space. Since 1996, we have worked to acquire, con­serve, and con­nect lands that are crit­i­cal for the pro­tec­tion of rivers and streams and that pro­vide recre­ational oppor­tu­ni­ties for the community.

We own and man­age more than 5,000 acres, mak­ing us one of the largest own­ers of pri­vate nature pre­serves in the state of Alabama. With our many part­ners, we have helped pro­tect more than 10,000 acres through­out Cen­tral Alabama.

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust is based in Birm­ing­ham, Alabama and works to pre­serve the places that mat­ter in Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Jef­fer­son, Shelby, St. Clair, Walker and Tuscaloosa coun­ties. We are nation­ally accred­ited by the Land Trust Accred­i­ta­tion Com­mis­sion, a mark of dis­tinc­tion that indi­cates we meet national stan­dards of excel­lence, uphold the pub­lic trust and ensure con­ser­va­tion efforts are permanent. With a dedicated Board of Directors and trained staff, we are well equipped to use our extensive conservation toolbox to assist landowners interested in preserving their land’s con­ser­va­tion val­ues, such as fam­ily farms and work­ing forests, scenic views, his­tor­i­cal sites, pub­lic recre­ation, and nat­ural habi­tats for rare plants and animals.
