"If it were not for The Alabama Conservancy, there would be no concept of Eastern Wilderness." Former Senator Floyd Haskell of Colorado

Did you know that Alabama Environmental Council--formerly The Alabama Conservancy--is the oldest state-based environmental organization (i.e., not part of a national organization like Audubon or National Wildlife Federation)? In 2017, AEC will celebrate its 50th anniversary. (AEC was founded in 1967 and incorporated in 1969.) You can read more about our history here and download a PDF that tells our story.

Won't you help us celebrate 50 years of accomplishments, including leading the fights for the Sipsey Wilderness, Alabama's Clean Air and Clean Water legislation in the 1970s, and 30+ years of recycling in Birmingham and beyond? Your $50 contribution will take us into the next half-century of work. But please don't stop at $50... if you can give more, use this link to donate any amount you like!
