While TNC maintains ownership of some of our lands, much of the land we have protected has been transferred to public ownership. You may be surprised to see all of the familiar places that TNC has had a hand in conserving!

Some of the most important conservation areas have been transferred to the N.C. Division of Wildlife Resources Commission for inclusion in state game lands. The Commission maintains game lands as multiuse conservation areas and welcomes nonhunters. However, all game land visitors should check on hunting schedules before their visits. Information is available at www.ncwildlife.org or by calling (800) 662-7137. Hunting is also allowed at national wildlife refuges; you can check on these hunting schedules at www.fws.gov/refuges.
A few of TNC's preserves are readily accessible to all visitors and are open year-round. But most are only accessible through Conservancy-conducted field trips.
