Land Trust For The Little Tennessee ~ Macon County Franklin, NC

The Little Tennessee River Franklin, NC

LTLT helps to conserve the landscape of the upper Little Tennessee and Hiwassee River valleys by protecting private lands from inappropriate development.   They do this by working with private landowners to place conservation easements on their property, by accepting gifts of land, and by purchasing at-risk properties.

As of September 2009, LTLT has protected 3564 acres through conservation easements (see Easement Examples), and another 1278 acres through acquisition (see LTLT Properties).  LTLT also played an important role in the State of North Carolina's acquisition of the Needmore Tract

Ben Creek in the Nantahala ForestThe Land Trust for the Little Tennessee  is a community-based nonprofit which, since 1999, has been a key for the protection of more than 12,000 acres of land, including riverfront lands along 35 miles of the free-flowing Little Tennessee River.

If you would like to get involved there are many ways to do so, whether it be Membership, monetary Donations, Gift lands, Volunteering or a Business Membership, there are many creative ways to help keep the Heritage & History of Macon County Franklin, NC.
