Little River Canyon
Lookout Mountain Conservancy in partnership with The Conservation Fund, is working with willing landowners on a voluntary basis, to purchase important lands along the rim of the Little River Canyon National Preserve, a natural treasure located in the heart of Alabama.
Protecting water quality and wildlife
The area holds particular significance because of its relationship to the wildlife habitat and long-term water quality of the Little River as well as the historic nature of its bluffs and overlooks.
Working with new landowners
Once purchased, the Fund would sell the land to a new landowner, subject to a conservation agreement (called a conservation easement) held by Lookout Mountain Conservancy. The purchase price for that land is likely to be more affordable because it will be conserved land. The new landowner will be responsible for the management and upkeep of that land.
