Since 2000, Tar River Land Conservancy has protected 22,144 acres of land that supplies drinking water to our local communities, farms and forestland that provide economic benefits in our region, wildlife habitat for numerous game and nongame species, and recreational open spaces that offer destinations for hunting, hiking, and the enjoyment of nature.

Our donors, volunteers, and advisors play a critical role in Tar River Land Conservancy’s success. Please consider joining our circle of supporters by making a tax-deductible charitable contribution today or signing up to volunteer your time and expertise. With your help, we will continue to preserve land and water in our community as a natural legacy for future generations.
