Diversity and inclusion are foundational values of Freshwater Land Trust and primary drivers of our work in the community and our workplace culture. A central tenet of our mission is to provide outdoor spaces and recreational opportunities to everyone in our geographical footprint, regardless of their location, income level, neighborhood demographics, or physical ability. As a result, our work helps grow the collective consciousness for protecting and enjoying the natural environment and strengthen social bonds between diverse populations. We intentionally seek work in marginalized communities in order to help build a more inclusive community in the Greater Birmingham and Central Alabama area.
As an organization, Freshwater Land Trust believes that each of our employees brings unique and special skills, perspectives, and experiences to the table, and we strive to maintain a culture that allows each of them to thrive, succeed, and contribute to Freshwater Land Trust’s mission to his or her fullest potential.
