The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust (NCCLT)

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust works with landowners to conserve lands with scenic, recreational, historic and/or ecological value. The NCCLT mission is to enrich the coastal communities of the state through conservation of natural areas and working landscapes, education, and the promotion of good land stewardship.

The Coastal Land Trust saves land exclusively in North Carolina’s coastal plain, addressing beaches that become state parks, streams that provide clean water, forests that are havens for wildlife, working farms that provide local food, and beautiful nature parks for everyone to enjoy. In the first twenty years, the NCCLT saved more than 62,000 acres of land. Staff focuses on saving and restoring special places, such as barrier islands, nature parks and longleaf pine forests.

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust invites all who care about the future of the coast to join efforts.
