Black Warrior Cahaba Rivers Land Trustupdated: September 2008

The Black Warrior-Cahaba Rivers Land Trust (The Land Trust) is one of the newest land conservation organizations in Alabama.  The Land Trust’s mission is to improve water quality and provide public recreation by preserving sensitive streamside buffers and critical uplands within the Black Warrior and Cahaba River watersheds.  The Land Trust is a 501 (c) (3) not- for-profit corporation governed by a twelve member Board of Directors.  We have adopted a business oriented, partnership approach to our conservation efforts, working cooperatively with private landowners, local citizens, business interests, elected officials, government agencies and other conservation organizations to achieve our mission.  The Land Trust strives to couple our watershed protection efforts with recreational and educational opportunities for the public via the installation of low impact nature trails and interpretive signage where compatible on our lands.   We believe education combined with public accessibility will instill a strong conservation ethic among the community that can only serve to enhance and promote river conservation.
