North Carolina Coastal Land Trust

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust is a non-profit organization formed in 1992 to help protect locally and regionally valuable natural areas and waters. Since its inception, the Coastal Land Trust has protected over 23,000 acres of barrier island beaches, riparian corridors, and other special natural areas

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust enriches the coastal communities of our state through the acquisition of open space and natural areas, conservation education and the promotion of good land stewardship.

The Trust is active throughout the Coastal Plain of North Carolina: its beaches, river corridors, farms, forests and marshes, its sandhills and savannas, its public parks and greenways. We aspire to bring together citizens and landowners, natives and newcomers, to set aside lands for conservation.
