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.

2017 Highlights:

  • We conserved over 100 new acres of land throughout Central Alabama, with an additional 2,700 acres in the conservation pipeline!
  • We launched our Sunday Hike Series, hosting seven hikes and 200+ people on our conservation properties and along the Red Rock Trail System.
  • We extended the habitat of the Vermilion darter, an endangered fish found only in Central Alabama! This exciting progress would not be possible without partners like Forever Wild, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.

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.
  • We have a proven track record, having pro­tected over 11,000 acres of land in our twenty-year history. This includes 1,108-acre Red Moun­tain Park and 700-acre Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.
  • We are a good invest­ment. We work to ensure that every dol­lar is used efficiently to transform our community.
