About: Triangle Land Conservancy (TLC) is a nationally accredited land trust servicing a thriving six-county Triangle region of central North Carolina. Founded in 1983, TLC has successfully conserved over 18,000 acres land. TLC strives to create a healthier and more vibrant Triangle region by safeguarding clean water, protecting natural habitats, supporting local farms and food, and connecting people with nature through land protection and stewardship, catalyzing community action, and collaboration.
2017-18 DGIN funding will support TLC’s pilot project with Merrick-Moore Elementary School of Durham’s Girls on the Run program that supplements their 10-week curriculum by teaching girls to embrace active lifestyles to build confidence and character with positive outdoor experiences and role models at TLC nature preserves. Once a month, the girls enrolled in Merrick Moore’s Girls on the Run program will come to one of TLC’s nature preserves after school.
