About Us

Our Mission

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

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.


Accreditation seal is only awarded to land trusts meeting the highest national standards.
