Asheville Watershed Conservation Easement

Inspiring and enabling people to build resilient, just communities.

Since 1991, we’ve proven that strategic conservation, like our work along the Blue Ridge Parkway, has its rewards. The land has always called us to protect the breathtaking mountains, forests, farms and beaches. It now calls us to build a resilient foundation for North Carolina’s future.

In 2019, CTNC's board and staff committed to a new mission focused on conserving land in ways that inspire and enable people to build resilient, just communities. Alongside community partners, we are committed to a process that increases funding for land and water conservation, factors the impacts of climate change into long-range plans, increasingly connects conservation to individual and community needs, and seeds equity and inclusion throughout the conservation sector.

We're shifting our focus toward a more holistic vision for conservation.

We will advance big ideas to tackle our state's gravest conservation problems.

We will take bold steps to invest in the power of people in conservation.

We will work where land provides individual and community prosperity for all.

We will use our solid foundation to address challenges facing all NC communities.

From the mountains to the sea, CTNC will land with purpose.

We need your voice, your support, your partnership and your dollars to build resilient, just communities that will prosper as we face the challenges ahead. Will you join us?
