Our Partners

Getting More Done Together

The Nature Conservancy works closely with many partner organizations to protect land for public ownership in North Carolina. This allows public conservation money to go further, being leveraged by private funds, as well as makes donor monies stretch. The groups we work with include government agencies, conservation organizations, and land trusts

Land for Tomorrow

TNC is a part of Land for Tomorrow - a statewide partnership of concerned citizens, businesses, interest groups and local governments urging the General Assembly to fully fund the state's conservation trust funds:

  • Clean Water Management Trust Fund
  • Natural Heritage Trust Fund
  • Parks and Recreation Trust Fund
  • Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund

Every year, Land for Tomorrow produces a Green Book that details conservation projects around the state and gives a county-by-county account of where conservation dollars are being spent.

We also have an annual Lobby Day (March 22, 2011 - see our Events page for more information) during which people from all over the state come to Raleigh to lobby their legislators about the importance of clean water and open lands. We would love to have you join us!

  • Contact Debbie Crane at (919) 794-4373 or for more information about Land for Tomorrow, the Green Book, or Lobby Day.
