Land Trust of North Alabama
Vision
 The Land Trust leads regional and community collaborations that plan, preserve, and provide stewardship for green space in North Alabama.


Mission
The Land Trust preserves and protects land and its legacies, including wildlife habitats, farms, historic sites, waterways, and mountains for conservation, public recreation, and environmental education to enhance quality of life in North Alabama.


Long recognized as a leading center for technical research and the space industry, North Alabama is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation.  And, North Alabama is a scenic jewel.  But our mountains, rivers, and rich agricultural lands  are more than just scenery – they’re also valuable resources that provide our communities with quality drinking water, local food sources, recreation, and places to relax and recharge.


The Land Trust of North Alabama is dedicated to connecting people with nature.  The Land Trust protects and stewards significant and vulnerable natural, scenic, and historic areas to help ensure that our cherished natural resources will be here for all to enjoy for years to come.

BOTANICAL GARDENS

Welcome to the Garden

In this dynamic young garden you will find inviting woodland paths, stunning floral collections and exhibits to delight visitors of all ages.

Paths meander through the shady woodlands of the Dogwood Trail and the lush fern glade, while native wildflowers quietly populate the Nature Trail. Daylily and herb gardens rival or surpass those of older, more mature botanical gardens. The demonstration vegetable garden showcases varieties of produce and inspires home gardeners.

The 5-acre Central Corridor Gardens, featuring aquatic, perennial, and annual displays are ablaze with color from early spring through fall. The Garden of Hope celebrates life and affords a place for quiet contemplation and observation of nature.

The summer of 2006 saw the completion of the Nature Center and Children's Garden complex: the largest seasonal butterfly house in the nation, where brightly colored butterflies live in their natural habitat, turtles sun themselves on rocks, frogs croak, and the rush of a waterfall takes you to a place of serenity, combined with a place where children can delight in a garden of their very own, where they can hide in a Secret Garden; host a special birthday party in the Half-Acre Wood; view aquaponics in action inside the Space Garden's real space ship; and see the world through a kaleidoscope of colors in the Rainbow Garden.

Seasonal activities enhance the visitor experience.

Come see the new exhibit in the gardens! Half a million Lego bricks make up 27 garden-inspired sculptures, featuring some over 8 feet tall.
