Georgia-Alabama Land Trust Announces Creation Of Harry Walker Conservation Fund

Engineering Eden book cover

The Georgia-Alabama Land Trust, in partnership with Penguin-Random House’s release of Jordan Fisher Smith’s ENGINEERING EDEN, has announced the creation of the Harry Walker Conservation Fund in memory of Harry Eugene Walker, a young Choccolocco, AL farmer whose 1972 death is the book’s central story.  

The Harry Walker Conservation Fund will benefit Georgia-Alabama Land Trust’s acquisitions of conservation easements to save farmlands and critical conservation areas as well as the organization’s conservation education work, which includes preserving local family stories and traditions in connection with the land. 

The trust currently protects over 300,000 acres with conservation easements that encourage farmers to continue to work the land.  Jordan Fisher Smith will appear with Land Trust staff and members of the Walker family to promote the fund and remember the life of Harry Walker at events in Alabama and Georgia in the fall of 2016.
