We appreciate your interest in helping to support the Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail! There are a number of options available to help the trail continue to serve the greater Mobile area and the University of South Alabama. Financially support the trail by donating to these accounts:

  • Donate to the Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail Endowed Preservation Fund. For the endowed account, we can use the interest only each year. As the capital in the fund increases, so does the amount available for spending. This is a long term investment in the trail. Your donation to this account can be done in the USA annual fund drive or as a separate contribution. Because this is a USA endowment account, your contribution may be matched by the University if it is made as part of the annual fund drive and you are a USA employee or alumni. To donate to the Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail Endowed Preservation Fund, please contact the Office of Development by email at or call them at (251) 460-7032.
  • Make a direct gift to the Nature Trail Improvement Account in the Department of Earth Sciences. Earth Sciences has a special account that is used to pay immediate bills. To donate to this account, send your check directly to the Department of Earth Sciences, 5871 USA Drive North, Room 136, Mobile, AL 36688-0002, Attention: Mimi Fearn. Make your check payable to the Department of Earth Sciences and write on the check "Nature Trail Improvements." For more information contact department chair, Mimi Fearn, by email at or call the Earth Science office at (251) 460-6381.
