Did you know that the Triangle Land Conservancy has permanently conserved 23,000+ acres of land in the Triangle since its start in 1983? This year, the TLC is celebrating 40 years of protecting natural habitats and connecting people with nature.
Two of the TLC’s eight public nature preserves are in Wake County, including Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve (4409 Mial Plantation Rd., Raleigh) and Swift Creek Bluffs Nature Preserve (7800 Holly Springs Rd., Raleigh).
