Welcome to the Weeks Bay Foundation

We are a Nationally Accredited Land Trust working to save the land, water, wildlife and critical habitats of coastal Alabama, while providing environmental education and outreach.

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. The Foundation, with the support of over 550 members, generous donors and event sponsors, has protected over 7,000 acres of coastline within 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.
