WELCOME TO CONSERVING CAROLINA

We are Conserving Carolina

We protect special places for nature and people! We have helped to protect more than 44,000 acres—from the waterfalls of DuPont State Forest, to the rock faces of Hickory Nut Gorge, to the farms and rivers that provide us with food and water. These places have the power to change lives. Whether you're a passionate hiker or mountain biker, a retiree looking for ways to give back to the community, or a parent who wants your child to experience the wonders of nature, we invite you to explore these amazing places and get involved with Conserving Carolina. Become a member, come to an event, or volunteer!
