Saving Land and Connecting Lives to Nature




  • Wildlife Habitat

    Our work protects wildlife and plant species in partnership with the NC Wildlife Federation, provides cleaner air and advances education and scientific understanding.

  • Clean Water

    The impact of our conservation work includes filtration of pollutants and sediment, prevents flooding and erosion, and provides clean streams, lakes and drinking water for your family and our fragile ecosystem.

  • Local Farms

    Creating conservation easements on local farms sustains our rural economies and working farms, reduces environmental and transport costs, and allows our local chefs to provide farm-to-table eating where we know exactly where our food is coming from.

  • Connection to Nature

    We strive to connect people with the natural world through nearly 15,000 acres of protected land and hundreds of miles of the Carolina Thread Trail through our surrounding 15-county region. It advances urban conservation and instills the value of nature in future generations.
