Preserving Our Land & Water
Catawba Land Conservatory
Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC) is a land trust – a nonprofit, community-based conservation organization that permanently conserves and manages land for public benefit in the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina. We are dedicated to saving land and connecting lives to nature.
Our six-county land protection area includes Catawba, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and Union counties.
CLC permanently conserves over 190 properties, totaling nearly 17,000 acres of land. That land includes farmland, ecologically rich lands to protect wildlife habitat and local drinking water, and land to provide the public with a direct connection to explore the natural world around them.
