Abstract:
The North Carolina Nature Conservancy, a nonprofit organization, works to save state land that has irreplaceable natural value. The Conservancy buys land using funds contributed by individuals, companies, and foundations and then transfers it to public ownership. To preserve the best of the state's natural heritage, the Conservancy has begun a $2 million fund-raising effort called “Conserve Carolina.” This will enable them to buy the land when it becomes available. About $1.25 million has been designated to buy land at reserves, including Nags Head Woods, in Dare County; Lanier Quarry Savannah in Pender County; and the Green Swamp in the southeastern part of the state.
