Item Description

Forever These Lands is a collection of photographs and stories that celebrate successful conservation projects of the Piedmont Land Conservancy, and the people who champion them. The purposes of the book are to share the beauty of the Piedmont, to raise awareness about the need for local land conservation, and to raise funds for local conservation projects.

Have you ever visited the Goat Lady Dairy? Have you fished for trout in the Mitchell River or floated down the Dan River in a canoe? While many residents or visitors are lucky enough to visit the parks, open spaces and natural habitats featured in the book, for others it is not possible. Forever These Lands brings some of the most captivating Piedmont scenes and colorful personalities to those who have yet to experience them.

Forever These Lands is the culmination of almost five years of work. In 2001, Piedmont Land Conservancy began professionally documenting the natural resources contained within the lands it conserved. Combined with photos taken in prior years, Piedmont Land Conservancy created a photo exhibit that was shown throughout the Piedmont.  The book is an expansion of this exhibit and incorporates thoughts from landowners with over 130 photographs. Since the exhibit debuted in 2002, over 7,000 additional acres have been protected. Piedmont Land Conservancy hopes the book will stimulate an even greater demand for conservation.
