Clabough Foundation Supports Blue Ridge Parkway Protection

CTNC recently received a generous $15,000 grant from the Clabough Foundation to support our work to protect more lands along the natural and scenic corridor of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and to collaborate with local land trusts that also conserve properties near the Parkway (Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, Foothills Conservancy of NC, Blue Ridge Conservancy, Piedmont Land Conservancy). Part of the foundation’s mission is “to promote and improve the conservancy and stewardship of the natural resources in the High Country of North Carolina… by aiding public and private organizations involved in such activities.”

For years, the foundation has made grants to help conserve specific Blue Ridge Conservancy and Foothills Conservancy properties in the High Country, making a real difference for water quality and forest protection. We greatly appreciate the Clabough Foundation’s support and belief in our work!
