The Land Trust of North Alabama, Alabama's first land trust incorporated in 1987, is a member-supported non-profit organization dedicated to preserving land for public land and its legacies for conservation, public recreation, and environmental education to enhance quality of life in North Alabama now and for the future.
The Land Trust leads the region and community in planning, preserving, and providing stewardship for public greenspaces including: recreation and wildlife corridors, historical and geological features, wetlands and watersheds, urban open spaces, mountains, hillsides, and scenic views.
The Land Trust serves the 10 counties of North Alabama and, as of early 2011, over 6,100 acres have been protected. Land Trust staff and volunteers maintain three Nature Preserves (each of which is larger than Central Park and all are within Huntsville city limits) and 40+ miles of natural trails open to the public.
In order to help "grow" the next generation of land stewards, we provide environment education outreach programs and seasonal guided hike series.
