Item Description

The Nature Conservancy is wild about North Carolina . . .

That’s why the Conservancy has protected almost 700,000 acres in the state. There’s a lot that’s special about these lands. They include:

    * The world’s longest augen gneiss fissure cave
    * A swamp that is home to more carnivorous plants than any other spot in the universe
    * The oldest trees in eastern North America
    * Many of the highest peaks east of the Mississippi
    * The largest maritime forest on the East Coast

North Carolina Afield gives you details about these places and many more—from bog turtles to black bears, from mountain balds to the Atlantic Shore. Profiles of the most scenic Nature Conservancy projects in North Carolina offer fascinating ecological information, details on visiting, and stunning color photographs.

This illustrated guide to The Nature Conservancy's preserves and projects in North Carolina is an updated and enlarged edition of the 2002 volume. This new edition includes several newly protected areas and reflects the Conservancy's focus on the conservation of whole landscapes. The guide features descriptions of each preserve or project, conservation history of each site, and the information you will need if you'd like to visit the site. The book is a guide for exploring some of this state's best remaining wild places.

214 pages; color photographs & maps throughout.

Donated by the NC Chapter of the Nature Conservancy.
