Conservation Alabama is the only environmental non-profit organization in Alabama with a full-time lobbying presence in Montgomery. Since 1999, we have been working with state and local policymakers to find solutions to the problems that face Alabama’s environment and the people who live here. We promote conservation measures that protect public health, the economy, and the environment. We know that Alabamians value their natural resources, and we believe conservation is a bipartisan issue.

Our staff is available to answer questions and provide commentary on past, present, and future local and statewide conservation issues, as well as the legislative process and candidates for office.

Our recent legislative successes include:

·      Defeat of a statewide anti-wind energy bill (2014)

·      Passage of a historic structure tax credit (2013)

·      BP oil spill funds directed away from Alabama Trust Fund (2013)

·      Defeat of a bill to prohibit LEED-certified buildings (2013)

·      Forever Wild Land Trust program overwhelmingly renewed at the polls (2012)

Originally founded in 1999 as Alabama League of Environmental Voters, Conservation Alabama affiliated with the national organization League of Conservation Voters in 2007.
