Catawba Lands Conservancy Davidson Impact Fellowship Information Session

 Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC) is a land trust and a nonprofit, community-based conservation organization that permanently conserves and manages land for public benefit in the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina. CLC is dedicated to saving land and connecting lives to nature. CLC currently conserves over 15,000 acres of land. That land includes farmland, ecologically rich lands to protect wildlife habitat and local drinking water, and land to provide the public with a direct connection to explore the natural world around them. At this information session, we'll talk about the Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network of greenways, trails and blueways that reaches 15 counties, 2 states and 2.3 million people. There are over 250 miles of trails open to the public – linking people, places, cities, towns and attractions. The Thread Trail preserves our natural areas and is a place for exploration of nature, culture, science and history. This is a landmark project that provides public and community benefits for everyone, in every community. The Davidson Impact Fellows program is a chance for new graduates to work in nonprofit agencies after graduation with direct supervision from high-level leaders. Each experience will give the fellow an opportunity to develop his/her understanding of the challenges and efforts that are a part of bringing social change in our communities. In addition, fellows will take on substantial projects for the organizations to contribute to the efforts in a powerful and meaningful way.
