TLC makes a positive, permanent impact on the quality of life in the Triangle area by safeguarding clean water, protecting wildlife habitat, keeping local farms and food in our community, and providing places for people to connect with nature. We identify the most important natural and working lands in the region and work with landowners, developers, municipalities, non-profit partners, and the public to preserve sensitive land along streams and unique natural areas.
Our vision is to raise awareness of and change the way citizens think about the Triangle’s unique natural resources. With our partners, TLC will ensure access to these essential resources for our region’s communities. TLC is supported by more than 3,000 members and has preserved over 15,000 acres of land across a six-county region in the Triangle.
TLC’s mission is to protect important open space—stream corridors, forests, wildlife habitat, farmland and natural areas—in Chatham, Durham, Johnston, Lee, Orange and Wake Counties to help keep our region a healthy and vibrant place to live and work.

"I just really love the outdoors. For me, it’s the belief in something bigger than myself and also having the ability to leave a legacy, because this is all we’ve got."
