On December 10th, Freshwater Land Trust celebrated our 2020 and 2021 Corporate Partners for Conservation, as well as our organization’s 25th anniversary. We were grateful to welcome our partners to an in-person breakfast to thank them for their support.

We were fortunate that Dr. Stephen Haber, distinguished professor at Stanford University and Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution, was the guest speaker at our event. Dr. Haber discussed the recently released Innovate Alabama report on the importance of the state’s outdoor recreational infrastructure and the tremendous potential Alabama has regarding its forested land and water spaces.

Surprisingly, compared to its neighboring states, Alabama has fallen short in benefiting from its economic development potential for outdoor recreation. We were extremely pleased to hear Dr. Haber highlight our Red Rock Trail System as an example that should be emulated throughout the state. His presentation showed our partners the significance their donations make in transforming Alabama’s greenspaces.

The partners listed below support the enhancement of Central Alabama through land and water conservation, stewardship, and outdoor recreation. Freshwater Land Trust’s success in protecting wildlife habitat, improving water quality, and creating trails and nature preserves for our communities is a direct result of the critical leadership and funding from our corporate partners. We could not achieve these meaningful advances without them!

We also want to thank Cahaba Brewing Company for hosting this year’s celebration breakfast.
