Conservation Planning

Conservation planning is a critical aspect of PLC’s Land Protection Program. These plans help us identify and prioritize protection of our most important conservation resources, including water quality, natural areas, high quality farmlands, etc. Our conservation plans usually focus on specific natural resources in a particular area such as water quality in the Dan River, biological diversity of Alamance County, or agriculture in Surry County. 

In addition to the conservation plans we create, we also utilize and influence the planning efforts of our many government partners including local land use plans, recreation plans, watershed plans, etc.
