What We Do

Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC) is a land trust – a nonprofit, community-based conservation organization that permanently conserves and manages land for public benefit in the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina. We are dedicated to saving land and connecting lives to nature.

Our six-county land protection area includes Catawba, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and Union counties.

CLC currently permanently conserves over 170 properties including over 15,000 acres of land. That land includes farmland, ecologically rich lands to protect wildlife habitat and local drinking water, and land to provide the public with a direct connection to explore the natural world around them.

Interesting Info

Our Conservation Vision 2030 identifies four key focus areas for CLC: wildlife habitat, clean water, local farms and connection to nature.
We are the lead agency for the Carolina Thread Trail; over 350 miles of it are open to the public
We partners with nearly 1,100 donors, 128 landowners, 375 volunteers and several corporate partners.
