About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to protect and conserve land, natural areas, rural landscapes, family farms, and historic places within North Carolina’s heartland.

If we expect to enjoy the rural landscapes and natural areas of the central Piedmont and Sandhills in the future, we must act now to conserve them.

The appetite for land seems insatiable. Hundreds of acres of agricultural lands, natural areas and open spaces, historic sites and timberland that have defined Central North Carolina since time immemorial, vanish each day.

Operating in a fifteen – county region – Anson, Cabarrus, Davidson, Davie, Iredell, Montgomery, Randolph, Richmond, Rowan, Stanly, Moore, Hoke, Scotland, Cumberland, and Harnett – The Land Trust believes that we must leave a legacy for future generations.

Our leadership – a broad cross section of citizens like you and me – have come together to offer reasonable, attractive options to landowners who want to save their lands for future generations to enjoy. Our mission is to work thoughtfully and selectively with property owners to preserve our lands, our vistas and the essential nature of our region.

How Are We Funded?

As a private non-profit, we depend upon the generosity of those who care deeply about the central Piedmont and Sandhills. Contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations make it possible for the Land Trust to save lands and preserve our quality of life.

.8  * Join us October 9th at 9:30am as we paddle Tuckertown Reservoir. 

Three Rivers Land Trust  In September 2019, Phase I of the Alcoa Lands Project was completed. Phase I conserved 2,463 acres and 45 miles of shoreline along High Rock Lake. Now with the closure of Phase II Tuckertown, this project has conserved over 4,800 acres and 76 miles of shoreline along the Yadkin-Pee Dee.  Tuckertown Reservoir, an impoundment of the Yadkin River, is known for its recreational opportunities and as a vital water resource for North Carolinians. 

To celebrate this momentous achievement, the TRLT Paddle Club is hosting our next group paddle event in Tuckertown Reservoir on October 9th, 2021 at 9:30am. We launch from the Bringles Ferry Boating Access Area (3301 Bringle Ferry Road)  and Paddle to the Flat Creek Access (450 Wildlife Access Road). This paddle is 3.8 miles and will take the group about two and a half hours to complete.   

We encourage paddlers to organize their own shuttles. Limited shuttles will be available, but must be prearranged. Please contact nicky@threeriverslandtrust.org
