NORTH CAROLINA SANDHILLS CONSERVATION PARTNERSHIP
Who We Are
The North Carolina Sandhills Conservation Partnership (NCSCP) is a collaborative effort that brings together various federal, state and non-profit conservation groups to share information and resources related to conserving the vanishing longleaf pine ecosystem and recovering imperiled plants, animals and fungi in the North Carolina Sandhills.
Restoring America's Longleaf
Less than 3% of original longleaf pine forest remains throughout its historic range of 90 million acres. The NCSCP is one of 18 Local Implementation Teams (LITs) across 9 states dedicated to achieving the 15-year-goal of America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative (ALRI): to increase longleaf acreage from 3.4 to 8.0 million acres. LITs actively support range-wide efforts to restore and conserve functional, viable longleaf pine ecosystems.
