Foothills Land Conservancy

Visit us at http://www.foothillsland.org to learn more and make a donation.

Celebrating over 30 years of service as a regional land trust, FLC has assisted in the preservation of 65,900 acres in 28 TN counties & 6 other states.

In 2015, Foothills Land Conservancy celebrated another successful conservation year with the completion of a record number of land projects within a one year period – 24 land partnerships totaling 7215 acres. These projects span 5 states and cover 7 Tennessee counties!

To date, FLC’s cumulative land preservation efforts now cover 65,900 acres within the 7 states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and recent additions of Alabama and Virginia. FLC’s projects also involve two new Tennessee counties – Clay and Humphreys.

The primary way in which FLC works with landowners is through a conservation easement agreement. Landowners who wish to ensure their property stays in its natural state or as a working farm ‘in perpetuity’, or forever, they can opt to enter into this type of voluntary, customizable agreement with a land trust. This contract describes the activities allowed on the property like hiking, camping, firewood cutting, and farming but often prohibits things like landfills, mining, and further development – according to the landowner’s wishes. Landowners who place a conservation easement on their property can continue to own, use, sell, live on or bequeath their land. For more information about this conservation program and other preservation methods, please visit http://www.foothillsland.org/landowners.shtml.

Foothills Land Conservancy is dedicated to promoting, protecting and enhancing the lands and environments of the Southern Appalachian region and promoting the character of the land for the general public, now and in the future. FLC is a 501(c)(3) and does not receive any financial assistance from local, state or federal governments. The organization relies on individual and corporate contributions solely to sustain organization, land acquisition and stewardship funds. For more information about FLC, to make a donation, and/or to sign up for our monthly eNews letter, please visit www.foothillsland.org or call (865) 681-8326.
