About the Bash

The 11th Annual Bald Eagle Bash–the Alabama Gulf Coast’s Party for Preservation–is Saturday, May 22, 2021, at the Tonsmeire Weeks Bay Resource Center. This signature event for the South Alabama Land Trust (SALT) has earned a reputation for delivering great food, great music, and a great time, all on the edges of beautiful Weeks Bay. The “Bash” includes fresh Gulf shrimp prepared by the area’s best chefs and restaurants, a low country shrimp boil, delectable desserts by area bakers, beer from Fairhope Brewing Company and Braided River Brewing Company and a great selection of wine from M&J Wines and Pinnacle Imports. This year’s musical entertainment will feature local favorite The Marlow Boys!

Bald Eagle Bash is also SALT’s principal fund raiser, and provides revenue for land, water, and wildlife protection, along with education and outreach programs. Our sponsors receive widespread marketing and exposure, plus the opportunity to mingle with hundreds of guests at the ”Bash”.

About South Alabama Land Trust

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. SALT 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. SALT, along with the support of over 550 members, generous donors and event sponsors, has protected more than 9,500 acres along the waters’ edges within Baldwin and Mobile counties. This is done through conservation easements, land donations, and land purchases. The land we protect can never be developed, and will remain forever wild.
