Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy
The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy is one of the country’s oldest and most respected land trusts. SAHC works to protect the world’s oldest mountains for the benefit of present and future generation. 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. This is achieved by forging and maintaining conservation relationships with landowners and public agencies, owning and managing land, and working with communities to accomplish their conservation objectives.
