Dear Friends,

2017 was another banner year for the Conservancy! Our organization relocated to a permanent home on 300 preserved acres in Blount County, TN. Click here to learn about FLC’s new office at the Harris Farm. We also added new staff members. Click here to view their bios as well as the other staff members and our Board of Directors.  The Conservancy is excited to announce that our organization received a gift of 1,000 acres in Roane County! Click here to read the details. In addition to these major milestones, FLC preserved close to 16,500 acres. Here are a few numbers to highlight:

  • 46 land preservation projects were completed within 15 Tennessee counties and the 5 states of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia.
  • These 16,500 acres will join over 90,000 cumulative acres FLC has assisted in preserving since our organization’s beginnings in 1985.
  • In addition to the 1,000 acre Fourman track in Roane County, Foothills has also partnered with landowners on an additional 738 acres in our regional community of Blount, Cocke, Knox, and Loudon counties.

We could not have come this far without the support of our Friends of the Foothills! Thanks to your generous contributions, FLC is able to expand our preservation efforts across this diverse region. Foothills is a 501(c)(3) and does not receive any financial assistance from local, state or federal governments. We rely solely on individual and corporate contributions to sustain our organizational, land acquisition and stewardship funds.
