Catawba Lands Conservancy

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.

Through generous donations, grants, private and public funding, we are and will be able to preserve our region’s history and healthy, natural environment for future generations.

CLC is also the lead agency for the Carolina Thread Trail (The Thread). The Thread is a 15-county, two-state initiative designed to inspire and facilitate the creation and development of a regional network of trails, blueways and conservation  corridors that will link more than 2.3 million citizens. Today, 132 miles of The Thread are open to the public.
