Pacolet Area Conservancylast updated: April 2017

The Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) has served as the local and regional land trust for Polk County and surrounding areas in North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. The non-profit, grass roots organization is dedicated to protecting the precious natural resources making up the land and water which impacts the beauty and health of our area.

PAC works with landowners to help decide what happens to their land in the future and how best to protect their properties’ natural resources in perpetuity. As water has become a critical issue, PAC is working to protect not only actual waterways, but also the buffers protecting them. PAC has current programs focused on protecting riparian corridors, mountains and ridgetops, and the impressive greenspace created by the area’s horse farms.
