About Us

Vision

We envision a Lower Haw River State Natural Area that is expanded in size, strategically developed, well maintained, and connected to local and regional trail systems.

Mission

The Lower Haw is a special place that we're committed to conserving and enhancing for current enjoyment while creating a legacy for future generations.

  • Preservation and protection of natural areas
  • Establishment and operation of state scenic trails

  • Promotion of public awareness of the importance of the Lower Haw River ecosystem

  • Encouragement of acquisition and preservation of lands along and surrounding the Lower Haw River State Natural Area
