Our Partners

We protect North Carolina's natural places, for you and future generations, through great science and smart partnerships.

Getting More Done Together

The Nature Conservancy works closely with many partner organizations to protect and restore 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

Our Chapter 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
  • Parks and Recreation Trust Fund
  • Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund

Contact Debbie Crane at (919) 794-4373 or dcrane@tnc.org for more information about Land for Tomorrow.

Fire Learning Network

The Southern Blue Ridge Fire Learning Network is a collaboration of partners working to develop, share and apply the best available science to restore fire across a vast, diverse region. Partners and stakeholders work in teams in the network's eight landscapes to set and achieve restoration goals in their fire-adapted pine and oak forests. Landscapes include:

  • Central Blue Ridge Escarpment
  • Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains
  • Great Smoky & Unaka Mountains
  • Balsam and Nantahala Mountains
