Celebrating 40 years of conservation!

Since 1974, the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy has conserved over 64,000 acres of unique plant and animal habitat, clean water, farmland and scenic beauty of the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee for present and future generations.

Annual Giving Campaign

Your year-end contribution provides us with capacity to save the places you love in the Southern Appalachians. We need your support so we can continue to seize new opportunities for conservation and enhance outreach programs to help connect people to nature. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, we want to reach our goal of $150,000. Click here to make your end-of-the year gift now – and THANK YOU for helping us protect vital land and water resources.
