Our organization got its start in 1990 with a group of concerned citizen volunteers that worked quietly, but effectively, for several years to protect much of the Piedmont that our community enjoys today. That volunteer spirit and commitment to the organization continues to grow, helping to enhance and strengthen our land conservation and education projects. PLC serves nine northern Piedmont counties – Alamance, Caswell, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin.
