ACTIVE PROJECTS

Support Our Current Projects

You can help create critical connections in preserved land and provide new ways for our community to engage with nature by supporting our current projects.

Pollinator Garden at Blevins Gap

We are currently developing a Pollinator Garden at Blevins Gap Nature Preserve on Cecil Ashburn. Thanks to support from The Bakken Family, the area adjacent to the trailhead overlook is being transformed into a native wildflower garden with the goal of providing food and habitat for pollinators (birds, butterflies, bees, and other insects). This space will also be used to engage the community through a variety of education programs, sharing the importance of fostering a healthy pollinator population.

Cane Creek Canyon Nature Preserve

This breathtaking property southwest of Tuscumbia offers hiking trails created by original owners and caretakers Jim and Faye Lacefield, who donated the property to the Land Trust of North Alabama in February 2023.Support the continued maintenance and protection of this special piece of North Alabama by making a donation.

Tollgate Greenway

Help create a paved, multi-use greenway on Monte Sano to provide pedestrians and bikers a safe, scenic route to travel on the western slope of the mountain while also providing access to nature for people with limited mobility who cannot utilize our natural trails.

The City of Huntsville has pledged $500,000 but we must raise another $500,000 by August 2024 to make this project a reality.

River to Gap Vision

Envision a permanently preserved corridor of life from the Tennessee River to Blevins Gap, connecting us through trails and providing a migration corridor and habitat for wildlife. Connecting the Tennessee River to Blevins Gap would provide such a place. By pooling our financial resources, we can acquire and preserve the natural lands that provide key connections for this corridor as they become available.

Huntsville Greenway Master Plan

The City of Huntsville partnered with the Land Trust to revise and expedite a greenway master plan for pedestrian connectivity across the City of Huntsville. The BIG Picture planning process revealed that citizens, businesses, and planners expect greenways to offer a mix of safe commuter routes as well as connections for recreation and play. The Land Trust assists with greenway planning and mapping, identifying funding sources (philanthropic and grants), and property acquisitions.
