The Greensboro Science Center’s conservation mission is to preserve species and habitats through on-site programs, community awareness, field studies and fundraising for local and global conservation efforts. Today, we wanted to put the spotlight on one of our local partners in conservation, The Piedmont Land Conservancy (PLC). Every year, we are fortunate to be able to donate at least $1,000 to PLC, a contribution made possible by on-site conservation events as well the donations made by our very own visitors (thank YOU!).
The Piedmont Land Conservancy aims to permanently protect important lands in order to conserve our region’s rivers and streams, natural and scenic areas, wildlife habitats and farmlands. The organization has been active in our community since 1989, the year they first came together to discuss how to preserve the Piedmont’s most precious natural assets forever.
If you’d like to learn about some of their recent activities, check out LANDLINES. From protecting Randolph County’s highest point at Mount Shepherd to working with the Alamance County Voluntary Agricultural District Board to protect a farm established back in in the 1850s, this group has proven to be action-oriented and effective, and we’re honored to lend them our support.
