Mission Statement

Founded in 1974 as a non-profit, charitable organization, SAHC works to conserve the unique plant and animal habitat, clean water, local farmland and scenic beauty of the mountains of North Carolina and east Tennessee for the benefit of present and future generations. We achieve this by forging and maintaining long-term conservation relationships with private landowners and public agencies, owning and managing land, and encouraging healthy local communities. The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy has helped ensure the protection of more than 68,000 acres throughout the region, from the Highlands of Roan to the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Much work remains to be done. We invite all who care about the future of our southern Appalachian mountains to join the effort. Your membership, donations, time, energy and ideas will help meet the challenges of protecting these magnificent natural resources for us and for future generations.
