The mission of the Foothills Land Conservancy is to protect, preserve, and enhance the lands and associated environments of East Tennessee and to promote the character of the region for the benefit of the general public
From working farms to woodlands, watersheds to community parks, FLC has assisted individuals and families in protecting more than 25,000 acres to date. A private organization, we are dedicated to the preservation of the rich wildlife habitats, and the agriculture, scenic, and cultural resources of our region. Working with landowners, the Conservancy offers creative, free-market alternatives for the conservation of agricultural and forest lands. A community based land trust, the Conservancy is led by a volunteer board of directors experienced in planning, land and wildlife management, education, and real estate. Foothills is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is not affiliated with any local, state, or federal government.
