The Alabama Environmental Council is the oldest statewide nonprofit environmental advocacy organization in Alabama. We began before the first Earth Day, before the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, and before there even was an Environmental Protection Agency. It began in 1967 as the Alabama Conservancy by a group of dedicated individuals sitting around a kitchen table. Alabama's environment owes a debt of gratitude to these early environmental leaders.
