Land Trust for Central North Carolina Charity Profile
The LandTrust for Central North Carolina was formally organized in 1995 as an off-shoot of the Yadkin-Pee Dee Lakes Project. The founding Board of Directors saw the need for a land conservation organization to compliment the sustainable development work of the Project. Thanks to seed money offered by several individuals and local foundations, The LandTrust was quickly moving forward. Jeff Michael, a Stanly County native, was hired as the organization's first Executive Director. Later that year the Cooleemee Plantation became the first property protected through the use of a conservation easement.
For the next few years The LandTrust grew into a larger, more sophisticated group with lots of projects on its horizon. Tremendous projects like the preservation of the Wesfell Preserve in Stanly County, acquisition of the Catawba College South Yadkin Wildlife Refuge, implementation of ambitious projects like the Grant's Creek Project and others were falling into place.
