North Carolina Sandhills Conservation Partnership

The NCSCP was formed in 2000 with the specific intent to facilitate collaboration between various federal, state and non-profit conservation groups for the purpose of conserving the vanishing longleaf pine ecosystem and recovering the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker in the North Carolina Sandhills. The current Steering Committee members represent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army at Fort Bragg, U.S. Army Environmental Command, North Carolina Office of Conservation, Planning, and Community Affairs, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, North Carolina Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy, Sandhills Area Land Trust and the Sandhills Ecological Institute. The NCSCP continues to seek input from over 18 stakeholder organizations as it continues to develop a landscape-level strategic conservation plan for the Sandhills. County and municipal viewpoints about conservation issues have been provided through the Fort Bragg/Pope AFB Regional Land Use Commission. This group was revitalized for the sole purpose of providing community based input into the partnership's planning process.
