Protected Places

Each of these conservation successes represents the diversity of the Piedmont. They protect farmland, rivers, streams and wetlands, natural, historic, and scenic lands, and urban natural areas. Through the protection of these lands, PLC helps ensure the people who live and visit this region have clean drinking water, access to locally grown food, outdoor recreational opportunities, and scenic views.


PLC has protected more than 200 places across our region.

Many of these properties are private lands. For publicly accessible properties, see Parks, Trails and Preserves.
