Upcoming Events

One of Piedmont Land Conservancy’s main objectives is to connect people to nature.  After a long hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are really pleased to be able to begin offering some outdoor outings again this summer and fall. Check out these upcoming dates!

Lake Brandt Sunset Paddle

August 3, 2021 (Tuesday)

5:30-8:30 PM,  Lake Brandt Marina,  5945 Lake Brandt Rd, Greensboro, NC 27455

Lake Brandt is one of the best places to catch a sunset in the area!  You are invited to join PLC members, friends and staff for a sunset paddle led by nature expert and Park Manager Mr. Neil Thompson.  The park will be closed to the public and only open for participants in this outing.

Lake Brandt is one of three main watershed lakes rimming the north side of Greensboro. The lakes were created for drinking water, revered in these modern times for their vast recreational value. There are 42 miles of hiking trail along the lakes, not quite as much mountain biking, and miles and miles of open water for paddling.

Dan River Paddle

1:00 pm, Dan River Co. 110 Flinchum Rd. Danbury, NC 27016

Join Piedmont Land Conservancy members, friends, and staff for a paddle on the Dan River! This outing is limited to 24 people.

Register directly with the Dan River Company by calling (336) 593-2628 and note that you will be with the PLC group. PLC will be giving 10% off rentals. We will paddle the standard 6.2-mile Dan River Paddle Trip which is suitable for beginners and takes approximately 3.5 hours. Our trip will be led by PLC Board President Will Truslow, an experienced paddler and conservationist.

The trip begins with a 5-mile paddle through the Hammer-Stern Wilderness Preserve and ends with a spectacular paddle through a 1 mile section at Hanging Rock State Park, along the Dan River Bluffs.
