The Piedmont Land Conservancy's mission is to protect natural and scenic lands, farms, and open space in piedmont North Carolina to enrich the quality of life for our communities and for future generations.
To fulfill this mission, the PLC strives toward the following goals

  • To acquire and manage natural areas in piedmont North Carolina
  • To protect endangered or significant native species of flora and fauna and to preserve areas with significant topographical features
  • To maintain the ecological integrity of the bioregion, including its air and water quality and biological diversity
  • To fulfill the human need for scenic land and open space to provide opportunities for learning from and enjoying the natural world
  • To enhance and buffer our communities

Piedmont Land Conservancy began as an idea in 1989 when several long-time residents met around Kathy Treanor's dining room table. They came together to discuss how to make a difference by conserving the Piedmont's most precious natural assets forever.

A year later, they incorporated Piedmont Land Conservancy as a tax-exempt non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization. Today and then, Piedmont Land Conservancy preserves natural and scenic lands, farms and open spaces in Piedmont North Carolina – lands that enrich the quality of life for our communities and for future generations.

The Conservancy is the only local land serving nine northern Piedmont counties – Alamance, Caswell, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin. PLC is a member of the Land Trust Alliance and the association of North Carolina Land Trusts – the Land Trust Council.
