Foothills Land Conservancy is dedicated to protecting, preserving, and enhancing the lands and environments of the Southern Appalachian region and promoting the character of the land for the benefit of the general public, now and in the future. We work with families and individuals who are considering preserving their land ‘in perpetuity’, or forever. Over the years, families have contacted us asking for help in their quest to secure the future of their farm, woodlands, or open spaces and they make the choices of what can happen on the land.
If you own property and don’t want to see it developed or you want to see it remain as a farm, FLC can help you do with your land what you want to do with it. The most popular preservation method for land owners is through a conservation easement. This is a legal contract between a landowner and FLC describing activities that may take place on a property in order to protect the land’s conservation values. Landowners continue to own, use and live on the land. A conservation easement protects property from being developed and owners can always sell, lease, or donate their property.
For more information about these programs please visit our Landowners page.
