The Nature Conservancy in Alabama has received a generous grant, which will be paid over the next five years, from Birmingham-based EBSCO to enhance three freshwater conservation projects.

The three projects are reconnection of the Alabama and Cahaba rivers, Locust Fork River restoration and Birmingham stormwater run-off and redirection.

“We strive to create science-based solutions for urgent conservation issues, and this transformational gift will allow us to better protect both Alabama’s world-class freshwater resources and the communities that rely on them,” said TNC in Alabama State Director Mitch Reid. “Meaningful, impactful and lasting conservation efforts require both time and money, but without the support of companies and individuals, the long-term costs could be exponentially more.”

EBSCO has been a longtime supporter of the Nature Conservancy.

“We’re happy to continue supporting TNC and its ability to turn ideas and conversations into action and conservation,” said Dell Brooke, EBSCO community impact committee chair.
