WELCOME TO CONSERVING CAROLINA
We are Conserving Carolina
We protect wonderful places for nature and people! We have helped to protect more than 45,000 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 special places and get involved with Conserving Carolina. Become a member, come to an event, or volunteer!Learn More
