Jones Valley Trail’s Extension:

We need your financial support to build Jones Valley Trail’s extension! This critical, long-anticipated trail project will connect downtown Birmingham to Avondale’s 41st Street. With your help, our goal is to break ground in 2020 and open the trail in time for the 2021 World Games.

2019 Highlights:

With incredible partners, we opened three new trails in Jefferson County’s Red Rock Trail System!

We also removed a culvert and enhanced an endangered species habitat on Turkey Creek and hosted our second-annual, county-wide endangered species tour.

2018 Highlights:

  • We opened Kiwanis Vulcan Trail! Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Birmingham for making this new trail possible. You can now walk, run, and bike from Vulcan Park & Museum all the way to Green Springs Highway.
  • We opened Wildwood Preserve to the public! Our 51-acre conservation property is located between I-65 and Shades Creek, is home to a number of wildflowers and salamanders, and features a small parking lot and walking trail. Thank you to the Daniel Foundation for supporting our efforts to provide public access to the outdoors.
  • With U.S. Fish and Wildlife and the City of Birmingham, we completed our Roebuck Springs restoration project, improving the habitat of Alabama’s rare watercress darter.

When you give, you invest directly in the vitality of Central Alabama.

  • We are the only con­ser­va­tion non­profit conserving land solely in Central Alabama.
  • We are the first accred­ited land trust in Alabama and part of a growing community of accredited land trusts across the country.
