Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy

and

Pacolet Area Conservancy

are now

Conserving Carolina

Our new name is active and action-oriented, reflecting our missions and legacies of permanently conserving the places you love. Conserving Carolina clearly communicates who we are and what we do. As we combine our expertise, talents, and resources under a unique, consolidated banner, we are excited to present a fresh face to our neighbors and build a stronger, larger community of advocates.

As sister organizations—each with deep roots and rich histories of conserving and caring for lands in our region—we are uniting to increase conservation efforts in our area. Together, we can do more for you! 

We will maintain offices in Columbus and Hendersonville, NC, with current staff remaining in place under the direction of a consolidated board of directors and Executive Director Kieran Roe.

Look for our new logo and website in the coming months as we progress through our branding process.

As always, thank you for being by our side, working together to create meaningful change in our community.

We are Conserving Carolina … are you?
