Welcome to the Weeks Bay Foundation

Our mission is to protect land and promote environmental education in coastal Alabama so current and future residents can enjoy clean water and the seafood, wildlife, and outdoor recreation that define our area. 

The Weeks Bay Foundation was incorporated in 1990 as a non-profit organization to support the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in its efforts to conserve the pristine coastal area of Baldwin County, Alabama. In 2009, the Foundation became a Nationally Accredited Land Trust. With the support of more than 550 members, generous donors and event sponsors, we have protected more than 7,000 acres of coastline in Baldwin and Mobile counties. This is done through a combination of conservation easements, land donations, and purchases. The land we protect can never be sold to developers and will remain wild forever.

You can help us continue in our mission to protect the land, the water, and the wildlife by becoming a member of the Foundation or by making a one-time or monthly contribution.
