One of south Alabama’s oldest conservation groups has changed its name.

Weeks Bay Foundation is now South Alabama Land Trust (SALT). Diana Brewer, Development and Communications coordinator for SALT, said planning the name change began two years ago when the board decided the old name did not accurately reflect the organization’s growing geographic concerns for the land and water it protects.

“At the end of 2018 our board voted in favor of the name change,” Brewer said. “We started out 30 years ago protecting land for the Weeks Bay Reserve but we now protect lands in Mobile County, on Dauphin Island and we’re working on some in Stockton. Realizing that all of the tributaries, the rivers, the delta and the bays all eventually make their way into Mobile Bay or the Gulf of Mexico, we’ve got to work to get more people involved in protecting the land.”
