Protecting What You Love

Since 1990, Piedmont Land Conservancy has protected significant lands in a 9-county region of the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina.

We protect these special places to help ensure clean water for our communities, locally grown food, habitat for our wildlife, and preserves, trails, and other places for people to connect with nature.

You Make it Happen

PLC is a non-profit membership organization which relies on individuals to support our day-to-day operations. Funding to acquire conservation properties comes from individuals, foundations, and government agencies.


"Supporting Piedmont Land Conservancy is important to me as someone who utilizes the many wonderful acres of trails through the Piedmont. I want those who travel to the area and those like me that need time in the woods searching for their favorite bird to have a clean and safe environment to explore. "

"We support PLC because we want to help protect landscapes for the benefit of people and our non-human kin. This is particularly important to us as the climate crisis worsens. And we are increasingly wanting to support local, not just national, organizations."
